Although the nerve centre of Ardmore has moved to Caversham in the Natal Midlands, the majority of the artists continue to work on the Ardmore farm near their family homes in the Champagne Valley. On a clear winter day the Zulu artists can be seen enjoining the warm sunshine while painting and finishing their creations against the backdrop of the majestic Champagne Castle in the Drakensberg. Within the original stone cottages, the sculptures and throwers work. The artists also have the option of working from home.
Fèe spends a considerable amount of time at the Berg studio, encouraging and helping each artist. As she says, "I undertake to buy every piece completed by our artists. While each piece is the individual expression of the artist's creative mind, it's my job to ensure that a high standard of finish is maintained and that every piece is marketable."
