We are 5 contemporary jewellery and object makers who want to celebrate, support and promote Melbourne’s amazing contemporary jewellery community.

NORTHCITY 4 is a not-for-profit organisation encompassing a shared jewellery and object studio in a healthy and professional workspace and learning environment.

We are excited! Nc4 Is a Real Thing. We have been planning and meeting and discussing and raving over bottles of wine and, finally, celebrating over bottles of champagne as our ideas and plans have come to fruition. Northcity4 is the culmination of all our hopes and passions as makers and members of our community.  It will be launched officially in the new year, towards the ends of feb. (we hope)

Northcity4 is not just about us, it’s about the community we live and work in and we hope to bring it all together into this one space and share it with you and your friends.


NORTHCITY 4 is committed to promoting and supporting the integration of sustainability into all aspects of jewellery and object based practice. We aim to work closely with local and international jewellers, artists and educators to expand the exploration of skills and techniques (both traditional and contemporary) and encourage the dissemination of that knowledge through mentorships, seminars, access studios and workshops.


YAY! So excited about this and look forward watching it blossom and grow and succeed. Best wishes!!
