I Just have to mention the tv series Made By Hand.
It's a great feature doco on handmade crafters in Melbourne. Or as the website states 'Made by Hand is a new, documentary style, television series that showcases the world of beautiful and unique handcrafted works made by the crafts people of Melbourne.'
It's a half hour show (well, actually a bit less) - I wish it was longer!
This series started in late June, next week is the 8th episode (10 episodes in the series).
If you have missed any of the series, you can download the episodes from the Made By Hand website.
Last nights features were:
in.cube8r Gallery - the one-stop-shop for all gift, accessory and self-embellishments home to 90 artists and hand makers leasing display cubicles, creating an eclectic mosaic of handmade jewellery, textiles, prints, ceramics, glass…
MADE IT - an online market solely for Australian independent & handmade goods. Sellers are able to sell their goods to every corner of Australia and the world and buyers are able to buy unique handmade goods from sellers 7 days a week.
A Little Light - Independent maker, Joanne Schoof makes gorgeous candles.
Next week should not be missed. Must see t.v!
One of my favorite textiles/fabric printers will be showcased (amongst others).
Ink & Spindle is a boutique textile studio located in Kensington, Melbourne. They design and screen print all their textiles by hand in an ethical and sustainable manner. Their designs are beautiful.
