A sad farewell at Astra

Fiona van der Walt passed away very sadly and unexpectedly in February.

She was a dedicated and devoted supervisor at Astra for 17 years. The products of her talents (most notably the baby patchwork floormats, cot duvets and ‘Bag of Plagues’) are enjoyed in homes across the globe. She was also responsible for the beautiful designs of certain items in some of Cape Town’s Jewish institutions. Staff and workers at the Centre are deeply saddened by this enormous loss and the role she played in their daily lives. Her creativity and the skills she taught the workers at Astra will live on forever.
