10 YEARS OF VERNACCING
SPEAKER: Pat Kramer
DATE: Tuesday, 18 March 2014
VENUE: The Athenaeum, Boundary Terraces, Newlands – at the intersection of Campground & Mariendahl Roads
In keeping with our 2014 theme ‘Honouring the Past and Celebrating the Future’’ we invite you to celebrate 50 years with us at the après-AGM party.
The talk, illustrated with photos Pat and John Kramer have taken on past Vernac excursions, will remind us of many excursions we’ve enjoyed together as a society.
Pat and John are regulars on outings and excursions (especially as Pat has so efficiently organised our weekends away for a number of years). John’s camera lens doesn’t just capture buildings, however. In the decade since our 40th anniversary celebrations, he has also captured many fun Vernaccing moments.
Pat describes what she has planned as a “lighter look” at Vernaccing, that will, she hopes, illustrate the special social atmosphere of our outings and the fun that is interwoven with the learning and study of southern African vernacular architecture.
