Studio opportunity

14 03 2012

I’ve been asked by the lovely Abby Seymour, of Golden Ink fame, to let you know about a studio sharing opportunity in Melbourne.

I am on the hunt for some creative people to share a studio with…

I have come across the most beautiful studio in the Young Husband building in Kensington, loads of natural light, 100sqm so ideally looking to go in with about 6 people and it’s in a fantastic creative hub of artists and small businesses.

I have a pretty decent printmaking/letterpress printing equipment that I am happy to set up for communal use, was thinking a nice mix of printmakers, jewellers, ceramacists would be lovely to share and aid each others creative practices.  

Link to space : http://manysquaremetres.com/msqm-studio/

It is the larger space (2nd photo) on the link above.
It is a little hard to tell from the photos, but it is truly beautiful.

Looking at locking in the space at the end of April.

Contact Abby via email: abby@goldenink.com.au

I hope Abby finds some lovely open-hearted beautiful people to share with!

Jeweller hunting

19 02 2012

One of my favourite jewellery ladies, the marvellous Zoe Brand, is a-hunting jewellers.

From her blog: “I’m jeweller hunting, send me an e-mail with your website/blog address and your contact details, I like to be kept informed, and I’ve always got a need to know some fantastic jewellers (you know curating shows etc). Don’t be shy drop me a line – zowe@hotmail.com – feel free to spread the word. The more the merrier!

And from her facebook: “I’m hunting down jewellers, drop me an e-mail with your website/blog and contact details – zowe@hotmail.com – you never know, something or nothing might come of it. Either way you have nothing to lose right?!

Intriguing … I don’t know what it’s all about … so mysterious … am looking forward to seeing what comes of it!
