Why hello! It’s nice to see you!
I cannot believe it’s already the middle of the year! Time is flying by and even though it might be Winter we aren’t slipping into hibernation this year… we’ve been super busy and have some exciting things to share with you this month!
But first, let’s reflect on the whopper of a June we just had! We opened three shows Almost Solo V.6, POP & the first of two shows by Alkanofer Collective. The Alkanofer show is currently running and is absolutely stunning… must see! I’ve gotta say, the response we get to some of our exhibitions is heartwarming… it’s so nice to have you guys join us for a drink on a cold winter’s eve…. makes all the difference!
Coming up this month, we’ve got another three fantastic shows for you including part two of the Alkanofer Collective show this coming Thursday the 5th, followed by Idol a week later and Galactic which I am really looking forward to!
July also marks our 11th Birthday! How exciting! To celebrate we will be featuring some of our most active cubers on our instagram! We love our cubers so how better to celebrate than to feature them front and center! We will also be celebrating turning 11 at 0ur IDOL opening on the 12th of July, and will be offering sales on the night for those who come and show their support to our crafters. I hope to see you there!
We’re also holding a bunch of fun workshops to celebrate, including some school holiday workshops for the kidlets! Many are being run by our cubers…. so participating is just another way you can support them!

Workshops for cubers & creatives
This month, I’ll also be re-running my Marketing for Creatives workshop which is like a kickstart into online marketing for creatives who need a hand navigating all the options out there. I’ll also be running a free workshop at Kathleen Syme Library (only one ticket left) about getting your handmade business off the ground… how exciting!
Winter may be trying to tickle us with icy fingers but we’re fortunate to have a bunch of new cubers whose creations are making us feel all warm and fuzzy (figuratively and literally!). Fozzel & Bean is covering our extremities with ethical knitwear, Sitting Pretty Designs is warming everything else with their colourful heat packs and stylish leather bags while Fake Treats is giving us an excuse to enjoy a beautifully scented warm bath with their donut bath bombs and candles. Other artists bringing a rainbow of colour to the store include A Vibrant Nest with their resin jewels packed full of glitter, J L Art with their exquisitely delicate watercolour paintings turned into greeting cards and prints, Matilda & Marlow with their precious felt dinosaurs and SmatDacks with their rad threads for colourful kids. And then there’s the classic silver jewellery which is a necessity all year round by Brooke & Belly, Ivy Design and Silvarai. Go read all about them on the blog.
We’re pretty full at the moment, but we do have a few spots available for people who make warm things, cozy things, things you can wear and visual artists who want to exhibit or sell on the print wall… More info on selling can be found over here…. get in touch to reserve a spot!
And finally…. pretty things!
And finally…. we’ve lots of pretty things for you to buy! All these pretties are available in the online store and are waiting for you to snap them up quick smart! Check them out on the online store now!
That’s if from me for now… I hope to see you in at one of the opening nights or during the week sometime soon!
