Our Designer in Residence for 2022 was Frances van Hasselt. Frances is a DSG alumni. She grew up on a family farm in the Karoo that owns one of the oldest mohair studs in the world. Frances is an entrepreneur and maker and designer of the international brand Frances V.H hand-woven mohair products.
Frances spent two days with the St Andrew’s College and DSG Grade 9 to 12 Design pupils, sharing her inspirational story of success. We combined her visit with careers talks from the Stellenbosch Design academy by Louise van Wyk.
