Open Studio restarts February 2013. Join Marlene (knitters group, 5pm )Marion and other staff members for creative time every Thursday afternoon at 5pm. Book Marion in advance by email or phone for one to one workings out of stumbling blocks to your creativity, or just simple technical advice about materials textiles etc.
Apart from great new workshops and stock lines we have a superb team of knowledgable people, including some of Australia's top young designers. We don't employ shop assistants... every one of our staff has specialised skill in her chosen area, including design, garment production, dyeing, knitting... so if you're trying to match the colour of the wedding dress you wore 20 years ago for your anniversary party, or you've picked an ususual pattern from a magazine, and no-one else can get that material or that colour or that style for you... we probably can do it all for you... source the material, match the colour and get the garment made. Ask for a consultation when you make an appointment to see us.
Through our links with the self-help organisation Vikasana in India we have been able to arrange custom making of ethical and environmentally-friendly soft toys for one of our associated businesses and craft items for another. We have tailors, embroiderers, toymakers, shoemakers, beading workers and a complete fair-trade supply chain waiting for orders. Your old made-to-measure garments can be mailed over to be faithfully copied in your preferred colours.
Closed Good Friday and on these long weekends- Australia Day, Easter, Anzac, Queen's Birthday long weekends.
