Thank you for another great live mentoring session and well guided. I like the live ones because:
– They often delve into other areas, so are VERY content rich
– They give me confidence because I can see that others experience the same problems
– I learn tips from others
– They really help me feel connected to the other makers, part of a great group, rather than (just … there is NO just re this!!!!!) a maker being supported by you and your team.😁
in.cube8r is an amazingly supportive space, where you get the opportunity (if you want to take it), to be mentored, to curate and launch your product ranges. What an amazing space to see what works or doesn’t work. To be surrounded by like minded individuals and the most supportive team from Elle to all of the amazing staff who have your back by promoting your products, encouraging you to promote your own and sort out your SEO, right down to the opportunity to feature in amazing magazines like Peppermint – yay to that. in.cube8r have your back!
I love selling my unique gifts and accessories at in.cube8r because they go out of their way to promote everything from locally handcrafted jewellery to Australian inspired original artworks and everything in between. They also have amazing customer service. You are always greeted with a genuine friendly smile every time you enter the shop whether you are a customer or a cuber. I can’t wait to see how my business will grow and expand with their continuing support.
Behind Sun Shell Creations is a mother and daughter duo, Reyna and Kaylee who are both passionate about creating colourful pieces inspired by nature. Having them displayed at in.cube8r is such a privilege. We love to see people happy through our collection.
I love how the in.cube8r team are so dedicated to promoting their makers’ beautiful product in a creative, passionate way. They allow me to focus on creating new items whilst they spread the love! in.cube8r gives local makers opportunities so hard to get elsewhere whilst starting out – that’s so precious these days.
I love both the online & in-store presence I have at in.cube8r! I get to showcase unique pieces to a wider audience than ever imagined! The exhibitions push me outside of my comfort zone and help me to grow as an artist, whilst the knowledge gained from the workshops is invaluable! Thank you in.cube8r!
I love in.cube8r! Providing Australians with access to authentic quality handmade products, providing artists with essential small-business support, networking and sales avenues and providing a much-needed boost to to the arts community. I love selling my watercolour original paintings and limited edition prints through in.cube8r because I know I’m reaching people who value my work. It’s wonderful.
We are thrilled to welcome in.cube8r to our affiliates programme – their commitment to supporting artisans and promoting their work is incredible – there is a great synergy between their determination to help Artisans succeed and our Australia first Artisan Accreditation that supports and recognises all work made with skilled hands in Australia.
I bloody love being a part of in.cube8r! Having my colourful abstract art pieces and digital designs stocked amongst the work of so many talented makers in Fitzroy is an absolute dream. The support, insight and development tools we receive are fantastic and the business structure is uniquely supportive of independent creators. I feel very blessed to be a part of the in.cube8r family!
Now more than ever, its important to support local. in.cube8r is a great platform for emerging designers to break into the market. It’s a great place to find unique gifts and with Christmas coming up its the perfect time to spoil yourself or your loved ones with something DECADENT
I love being part of the supportive and inspiring in.cube8r community! I’ve learnt loads from the friendly staff & other makers and it’s such a joy to see my own textile artworks displayed alongside such a variety of beautiful handmade products.
I love selling my handmade Polymer Clay jewellery at in.cube8r because it is a great community of makers. We all support and inspire each other to do better. in.cube8r is not just a place to sell handmade products but also a place to learn how to run a small business and how to engage with people more.
in.cube8r is a great place to showcase “art” whether it be a painting or earrings. This is why I love having a cube so I can showcase my earrings as there is no end to creativity! Starting my glitzy resin journey, let’s go for a ride!
I am so excited to have recently joined in.cube8r to sell product from my clothing label and Contemporary Paper Jewellery line. As well as being nurturing and supportive to the Artist, in.cube8r imbues makers with a strong sense of self and offers a truly fun and energised community.
Joining the in.cube8r fam was one of the best decisions I made this year even though most of the time I’ve been with them there was some sort of lock down.
So if you create art (including jewellery, clothing.. oven mitts .. chicken wings) definitely have a look and join this beautiful community.
Thank you for all of our coaching sessions. You inspired & enabled me to finally get organised, begin taking some decent images & create a website that is a digital portfolio of my work. I couldn’t have done it without you! – Corinne Lomon
I think in.cube8r is a perfect stepping stone for any new artists who want to share their ideas or works to the public. I have learnt a lot about the market as the team will let me know the customers’ feedback when they visit and send us a lot of information and news to update what’s happening in the market which is absolutely priceless. I hope that will let more people get to know my pieces through in.cube8r in the near future – Doramenda
I love selling my works at in.cube8r because it is such a great community, like a little family. Not only are Elle-May and the staff super helpful and supportive but I’ve built up some great relationships with other fellow in.cube8r artists from my time there and I love supporting what they do and really appreciate the support and feedback I receive in return. I’ve been a part of other artist spaces previously and have never had the genuine support that I have received from in.cube8r. We are given lots of opportunities to learn new crafts and also expand our small business skills with regular workshops and classes run at in.cube8r and we also receive a lot of feedback and tips on how to get more out of our cubes. – Christine Amanda
in.cube8r is a small gem hidden in the middle of a big city. I found my cube at just the right time, when I needed a local creative platform I never knew I could afford! But I had no idea it would unleash so many other wonderful opportunities to learn, expand, network and grow – Aiddie Jae
I love being a part of the creative community of emerging artists and designers at in.cube8r. As a new maker, having a retail presence at the Fitzroy emporium is a fantastic opportunity for me and the direct customer feedback is invaluable. Elle-May is helpful, full of ideas and always on hand to give advice and support when you need it. She even helped me launch my brand publicly as part of one of their gallery exhibitions, which was amazing. – Julie Stephens Designs
Selling @incube8r Fitzroy and Prahran, has given me the opportunity to sell in a supportive environment. Most of all it’s fantastic to be able to test what products work well in different locations, and to discover what customers actually want. It also can be fun curating a cube, changing things up and moving things around. Elle May is always open to new ideas and feedback too and is encouraging of all us makers and handmade in general. Yep shop small, shop local and if you can shop handmade. Kate & Rose
in.cube8r is the first physical shop I decided to stock my products at. For an online seller I was hesitant in the beginning but I’m glad I trusted my instinct and went ahead. To say the least, some of the benefits of being part of in.cube8r are, in.cube8r is beyond just a retail space, it creates a communication platform between emerging Australian designer and artists and helps connect makers. For example, through a Facebook group cubers can reach out to each other, ask questions, share knowledge and ideas and learn from the valuable experience of others.
in.cube8r initiates and facilitates running workshops, exhibitions as well as coaching sessions. in.cube8r staff take a genuine approach to offer support in anyway possible, actively engage with cubers and give productive advice on how and what to do to increase exposure and sales. Provides access to educational resources through newsletters. Helps with exposure through ongoing social media promotions.
The process of stocking my products at in.cube8r was quite simple and the team are so supportive. It’s a great little community that supports local artists and makes it easier for them to make a living out of being an artist whilst still being able to practice their craft. – Gen Engelhardt Photography
in.cube8r galleries have given me the opportunity to establish my brand in vibrant, dynamic, inspirational MELBOURNE! While each cube tells the story of its artists, together we form a community hub of Australian creative talent. As an interstate cuber being part of this community would not have been possible without the help & support of the Incube8r team.
Elle is the much needed bridge between creatives and business. She understands artists and how to impart her knowledge in a way which is engaging, understandable and exciting to implement. Couple that with the wonderful supportive environment offered by other creatives in the same position and you have the perfect foundation from which to build a sustainable creative business.
At in.cube8r Prahran every week for the past 8 weeks, my fledgling business has been nurtured in the safe hands of Elle and 3 fellow creatives. Our 4 businesses are at different stages, going in very different directions, and the Kickstart Your Business sessions have been fantastic. We chat away and then the aha moment hits. Elle has been getting our brains to where they need to be. Money, branding, marketing, online stuff, staying sane, we have thought and talked about them all and come up with a useable plan that fits our own business. I have learnt so much from being with this group; we share and laugh and get lots of thinking done. There is even homework, which has a point, and is fun. As we reach the end of the course, I have a completely different mindset for my business, a practical direction and I feel much more hopeful for it’s future. And I am going to miss my friends from this group. So, #love what you do: Elle gets creatives and creativity.
Doing this course has helped me to get really clear on the direction I want to take my business and helped build my confidence to actually do it. It’s been filled with practical advice, generated a ton of ideas and been a source of great support and inspiration for me. Lots of laughter too.
in.cube8r is an amazing place that has kept me warm, given me the opportunity to hatch and spread my little chicken wings.
in.cub8r is an amazing space to network and exhibit with a great vibe and support amongst a talented creative community.
in.cube8r has played an integral role in the development of my handmade children’s clothing range, which now has customers returning when they need gifts. The support, feedback and advice from in.cube8r has made me believe in myself and what I’m doing, which in turn has made my children’s range successful in store each and every month. We get to keep 100% of the sales – no commission is taken – how amazing is that for us artists! Kylie – St David Studio 3065
Thank you so much Elle! You gave me opportunity that I never thought possible! I was nearly packing up my business! Just wish I discovered in.cube8r years ago!!
I don’t normally write reviews, but I’m a little outraged there aren’t more reviews for this place. in.cube8r is the best place I know of in Melbourne’s northside to find pieces from local artists and craftspeople. There must be a hundred little perspex cubes featuring the work of a hundred starving Melbourne artists, but the content feels vetted and curated. It’s all pretty high to excellent quality, and most of it feels a little alternative. The jewellery, pottery, perfumes, zines, accessories and curiosities span the aesthetics of Franky to Coilhouse, if you’re familiar with those magazines. Handfelted cowl? Ring set with a porcelain cast of a human tooth? Amber perfume made in Melbourne? Life size handpainted bronze snail sculptures? Heck yes. Feed an artist today!
(review from google)
in.cube8r gallery shows & supports some of Australia’s finest handcrafters. All mediums are represented with 100% of all sales going directly to the artist. Always worth a visit whether you are a local or just visiting the wonderful area of Fitzroy, Melbourne. Right from the onset Elle-May showed through her actions & communications with me that she was very interested in growing my business alongside me. This has been done through regular feedback about my designs and what trends she has noticed from month to month. This has allowed me to tailor my work to the clientele in the area without losing my individuality as an artist & jeweller. The whole team at in.cube8r are a fabulous cohesive unit.
in.cube8r is a homegrown concept that helps nurture and showcase awesome handmade art, and artists, in a unique and approachable way. It is constantly changing as a space, and a concept as a whole – but what remains the same is the fact that I love it! I l have been part of the in.cube8r stable for 5 years and look forward to contributing to its evolution in the future.
From the incredible amount of local talent, products, and regular art exhibitions, to the strong community of likeminded people. I have been stocking my prints and artwork there for two months, and have also exhibited in a group exhibition. Elle-May and the team are so supportive and provide many opportunities along the way. I recommend the space for other creatives who want to get their work seen!
There is the most incredible blend of talent within these beautiful pink walls. A great stop for someone wanting something truly unique or a really awesome memento of a trip to Australia
I love all the beautiful handmade goodies and the vibrancy of this beautifully designed shop. The staff are always really lovely and make you feel welcome. A definite place to shop when visiting. It’s also a really nice feeling supporting very clever and creative locals.
in.cube8r is a great concept, creating a space for artists to showcase their work with all sales going directly to the artists! I’ve been to in.cube8r exhibitions & been a part of an exhibition & can say both were super fun to be a part of & very inclusive.
in.cube8r is not the sort of art shop you can just walk past. One little look and you’ll be sucked in – but it’s worth it! Funky jewellery, crazy creatures, weird bits and bobs, beautiful cards, colourful clothes, original art pieces AND a gallery out back… all the happiness of quality handmade products and original art pieces in one shop. Plus they have regular events! As an artist, I’m also obviously happy that in.cube8r has provided me a unique and vibrant place to sell my work. Happy times in Melbourne.
