What’s on at the moment:

In House Designed Made

Start date: June 29, 2017

End date: July 22, 2017

Objects developed in the intimate space of the studio, designed for the intimate space of the house.

(adj. ˈɪnˌhaʊs; adv. -ˈhaʊs) within, conducted within, or utilizing an organization’s own staff or resources rather than external facilities

In a micro design business, many tasks are performed in-house.

For designers at the prototyping stage, it can be difficult and expensive to source expert advice and hi-tech tools. They therefore often need to acquire new knowledge, skills and techniques, to translate the objects in their heads into physical products “in-house”.

Along the way, they often discover unknown proficiencies, taking projects in unexpected and exciting directions and suggesting new possibilities for future work.

In-House is an exhibition of designed objects by artists from the designed:made inc. collective, a group of designers, makers and artists working with timber, glass, ceramics, metal and textiles. For In-House, each designer/maker/artist chose to focus on an object, destined for use within the home, with many exhibitors exploring new ways of working.

Dry July

Start date: July 1, 2017

End date: July 31, 2017

In July, an average of 11,181 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer. No one asks for cancer, so we’re asking Aussies to help, and go Dry this July to raise funds for people affected by cancer.

Funds raised through Dry July go towards cancer support organisations across Australia, to help improve patient comfort, care and wellbeing.

Having a month off alcohol also has great health benefits, such as sleeping better, having more energy and of course, no hangovers! So you’re not only helping others, you’re helping yourself. It’s a win-win!

Wattle Day

Date: September 1, 2017

Wattle Day Sep 1

Wattles have long had special meanings for Australians and in 1988 the Golden Wattle (Acacia pycnantha) was officially gazetted as Australia’s national floral emblem.

2010 was the centenary of the celebration of wattle day on September 1910 celebrated only then in NSW, Victoria and South Australia.

In 1992, the first day of September each year was officially declared ‘National Wattle Day’ throughout Australia by the Commonwealth of Australia.

Wattle is our national floral emblem. It is a symbol that comes directly from our land;
Wattle is Australian and represents us all. Unlike other national days, National Wattle Day excludes no one;
Like our people, wattle has great diversity (with nearly 1.000 species) and resilience;
Wattle welcomes in the spring and is among the first plants to regenerate after fire, reminding us of the importance of renewal
as it paints our national colours across our land; and
Wattle is a unifying symbol for all Australians. There is no other symbol that says so much about us and our land, Australia
