Gloria Bastos and Elizabeth Morley have been Organizing the Hobby-X exhibition for the past 25 years. Hobby-X is the premier hobby, craft and leisure exhibition in the African continent and has drawn close to 2 million visitors since its inception.
They are also the originators and presenters of the hugely popular Show Me How TV Show, running on DSTV’s Home Channel for the past 15 years, with viewership numbers in excess of 1.8 million per week. By targeting guests with expertise on specific products and techniques, they are able to tap into the latest creative innovations and trends and showcase them in step-by-step projects that are both entertaining and informative. They have a huge and loyal following of dedicated and aspirational fans who are glued to the screen, for season after season of one of Southern Africa’s extremely popular TV programs.
Based on their extensive knowledge and expertise, not only in large-scale events but also in more intimate and personal workshops and training sessions, Gloria and Elizabeth have launched their much anticipated Creative Travel Club. Here, they host exclusive break-aways for a very limited number of people, taking them to beautiful destinations throughout Portugal and exploring with them the local culture, the inviting hospitality and gastronomical delights that the country has to offer. Together with their guests they explore creative ways to incorporate these as a subtle but meaningful thread that they weave into various creative projects.
Creativity is often confused with artistic ability but Gloria and Elizabeth believe that creativity is the ability to think outside the box; that creativity is an essential problem solving tool that can be applied to every area of our lives.
Albert Einstein once said: “To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination …”
