Wakkerstroom has many artists as living in an environment where time does not exsist and stimulates creativity.

The Glass Art Studio is situated on a farm 4 kms out of Wakkerstroom.    Here, Siphiwe Mbule, creates original glass products by using the kiln fused method.  Susanne formerly taught art at a teacher’s training college and two universities but  has moved to a game farm near Naboomspruit.  Siphiwe Mbuli will continue doing glass work and conducting classes under management of Obed Dlamini, a retired school principal from Newcastle.
