A working sheep farm which was handed over to the local community, sadly sits largely unused, with two women spinning and weaving wool, while a toddler sleeps on the floor beside them. The tower like building is a solid stone structure next to the small room the ladies used to spin their wool.


About Lady Grey

Lady Grey is a rural village in the North-Eastern Cape in South Africa near the border with Lesotho. It is situated in the foothills of the Witteberg mountains, 54 km due east of Aliwal North on the R58 road and 260 km from the capital of the Free State Province, Bloemfontein.


Lady Grey was established on the farm Waaihoek, purchased by the Dutch Reformed Church of Aliwal North on 30 April 1857 for the purpose of founding a new congregation. It was named in honour of Eliza Lucy Grey (née Spencer), daughter of Sir Richard Spencer, and wife of Sir George Grey the Cape governor [2]. The first municipality of Lady Grey was proclaimed in 1893. Currently, Senqu Local Municipality has its seat in Lady Grey.[3]

About Prints on Canvas

These prints are limited edition and numbered bottom left and signed bottom right. They are printed on the highest quality canvasses. The printing process has employed fade resistant, HP Vivera archival inks, which boast a 100+ year fade-proof promise.
