The woman who designs it all, Britta Dahms is the Marketing Manager at Workshop17, based at the Watershed in the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.
She received her qualifications in Industrial Design from CPUT, which covered both graphic design and marketing as well. Thereafter, she worked in the marketing department at the luxurious Ellerman House Boutique Hotel, then moved to the wine industry and in 2018, she happily joined our team.
This highly talented individual shares a deep passion for both art and marketing, which ties in beautifully with our business. She is a goal-driven, creative employee who is responsible for our overall marketing including website creation, digital and print advertising, social media platforms as well as digital and graphic design.
Britta is a proud member of our group and loves experimenting, not only in her designs but also in exploring her city. Hiking, swimming, boxing and visiting wine farms are just a few mentioned activities she loves. In her adventures, she has even found a few hidden gems including some magnificent waterfalls in Bainskloof and Wally’s Cave which is tucked away in the Lion’s Head boulders. To top her explorations, she loves sipping on an artisanal gin on Wale Street, overlooking the cities beauty in the company of the people she loves.
Trying new restaurants is also on her ‘top 10’ list of things to do with her friends. She has so far discovered many trendy little restaurants and has quite a palette for gourmet food. Clarke’s Bar and Dining, Kleinsky’s, La Mouette and Bacon on Bree are just a few of her most highly thought of eateries.
Her confidence and willingness to try new things can also be seen in her big leap of buying a house. Currently, she is responsible for the furnishing of her new home, which she said includes buying as many plants as possible. Hipster Alert!
