Oh wow, festivals come in thick and fast this time of year. You’ve just started to look forward to some time at home after the State of Design festival and now the Craft Cubed festival pops up its crafty little head to offer you even more events, workshops, open studios and exhibtions!
Of course the first Craft Cubed event I have to mention is The Treasury – we’re doing TWO very special classes with guest designers Anna Davern and Dylan Martorell. Anna is one of Melbourne’s most famous and talented jewellers, and Dylan is an illustrator, sculpter, musician and all-round creative master. I’ll let you know more about this later but bookings are already open so check it out and book it quick!
Apart from being involved in The Treasury, Anna Davern (along with Cass Partington aand Nicky Hepburn) is also presenting her studio to the public as part of the Open Studios program. If you’re not familiar with Anna’s work check out her website and blog, it’s lovely.
The Nicholas building is again having Open Studios. Unfortunately I won’t be involved this year as The Repair Workshops is taking priority, but check out the work of my very talented studio mates Jessica (illustration), Min (eco fashion), Eva (creative stuff) and Jake (jewellery).
The Social Studio will be stationed in the Atrium at Federation Square from the 5th to the 24th of August. On the 20th there’ll be a special performance from RISE – these people are amazing, don’t miss it!
