The Intern and I thought we'd brave the winter chill and do the rounds on Saturday. We always make Craft Victoria our first stop - it's at the start of the city so it's easy enough to clamber down the hill and see things. The much feted Bless design group have installed these strange and kind of wonderful garden boxes in collaboration with Melbourne groovers PAM (Misha Hollenbach & Shauna Toohey) Show grows until July 30.

I really loved the little work of Demelza Sherwood at Mailbox 141. Her show 'Notes to the Stallholder' was tinged with sadness and nostalgia and perfectly suited to this series of mailboxes serving as gallery space. Show runs til July 15.

The Intern was particularly impressed with the current platform show chockablock with girl street artists including the brilliant Baby Guerilla.

I think the Intern was so inspired after a trip to the Sticky zine shop that a publishing empire was born in her mind - too cool. I didn't take pics of everything we saw on Saturday (including gorgeous work at Pieces of Eight and E G Etal) but that gives you a little sampler. RAMONA
