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!!
in.cube8r will draw new customers to the precinct and also gives the 70 or so Cubers a great reason to visit Prahran!
in.cube8r is a small business providing retail and exhibition opportunity to small-scale artists and makers. Through renting cubes, artisans access retail customers without actually having to manage a stall or spend hours away
from the studio, marketing goods. The lovely in.cube8r staff takes care of sales and marketing! Artists receive 100% of sales. This retailing strategy is ideal for artists. The range of beautifully made and unique works on display is
a wonderful showcase of local talent!
2D, 3D, colourful, black & white, perfumed, textured, wearable, decorative... art in its many guises and sizes.
Customers meet artists whilst restocking cubes. Artists become teachers and art consumers in this gallery, studio, workshop and retail space. It is a vibrant community of makers of art who all benefit from the exchange and cross-
fertilization with other Melbourne based artists.
Its exhibition space is available to emerging and established artists and the shows change regularly providing artists with audiences and audiences with fresh ideas.
I don't normally write reviews, but I'm a little outraged there aren't more reviews for this place.
Incub8R 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!

In.cube8r Gallery shows & supports some of Australia's finest handcrafters . All mediums are respresented 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.
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.
Incube8r 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 Incube8r exhibitions & been a part of an exhibition & can say both were super fun to be a part of & very inclusive.
In.cube8r 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 an unique and vibrant place to sell my work. Happy times in Melbourne. 🙂
