FAMILY OWNED & RUN
WeaverWorx is a family-owned business, providing website design and hosting services on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal, but also servicing clients countrywide via digital networks.
Established in 2012 by mother-daughter duo Hester and Karen who successfully combined their skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to create cost-effective tailor-made website design solutions to suit their clients’ online needs.
A self-taught website designer, Karen started working with websites whilst working as a risk officer in the banking industry. What started as a small work-related task soon blossomed into an enthusiastic hobby.
After completing her Bachelor of Commerce in Law, Karen decided to turn her “hobby” into a career.
Starting out as MeyertonW, she designed a Drupal-based business directory marketing business in and around Meryerton, Gauteng. MeyertonW’s initial core service was business listings and advertisements, but after a few months Karen extended her services to include website design and hosting.
As the client list and workload grew, it became apparent that the business required another full-time pair of hands so Karen convinced Hester to join her. After relocating to the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal, they renamed the business to WeaverWorx.
Office manager, proofreader and fervent blogger, Hester is the organisational backbone and Words-Guru of WeaverWorx.
With a Bachelor of Laws degree and decades of experience in the banking industry as a process custodian writing policies & procedures, Hester provides indispensable proofreading services during the website design process.
