Are you looking for gorgeous handmade gifts in Fitzroy? We’ve got you covered!
in.cube8r Fitzroy is the larger of our two emporiums. Depending on the time of year, this space hosts 90-120 Australian-based hand-crafters at any one time.
Makers exhibit a diverse range of works including handmade jewellery, homewares, clothing, art and accessories. No product is too obscure, we love the unusual making it the PERFECT place to buy one-of-a-kind handmade gifts for friends (or for yourself)! And what’s more, we wrap them for you!
Established in July 2007, this space was the first of it’s kind. Artists rent spaces to exhibit their work without paying commission on sales; the only space in Melbourne operating in this way.
in.cube8r Fitzroy hosts fortnightly group art-shows showcasing Melbourne based emerging visual artists. We accept artists both emerging and experienced, usually pulling works together based on a common theme.
in.cube8r also hosts workshops focusing on marketing skills for makers, as well as life drawing and craft based workshops for up to 8 people. We encourage all to experience making things by hand, especially if just as a means of relaxation or self care.
Our Smith Street space has been featured in many fantastic publications in the last few years including Peppermint Magazine, Visit Victoria and Time Out. Ask anyone where they can buy beautiful handmade gifts in Melbourne and they will tell you to visit that little pink shop on Smith Street!
Some makers have been exhibiting their work in Fitzroy for almost a decade while others come and go. Many also exhibit at the Rose Street market on the weekend! Get to know some of the Fitzroy cubers below.

Meet our Makers!
Attend an art show!
We hold shows every 2 weeks featuring works from local artists all coming together under a shared theme. Our shows usually consist of around 15 artists and provide artists a wonderful opportunity to network, meet like minded people and gain exposure in a retail/gallery environment. Most art is made in Melbourne with a few interstate guests from time to time.
Attend a workshop!
We hold workshops on fun crafty things like embriodery, painting, drawing, print making, ceramics and more! We also hold life drawing sessions in our black wall gallery which we call Shadow Life Drawing due to the dramatic light in the space!
Our workshops are designed for beginners and as a way to relax with good company. Come along, learn something new and find your new passion!
We also run marketing workshops for creatives on business related topics, suitable for anyone who needs a little help getting their heads around the business side of craft.
Rent a cube!
The gallery consists of cubes, shelves, clothing spaces and wall spaces for makers and artists to rent for a small weekly amount and show their creations in our space 7 days a week. Products that work best are those that make good handmade gifts but all mediums are considered! We take no commission on sales and aim to support makers on their handmade journeys.
