the hungry workshop
As you are probably all aware there is a lot of craft related activity going on in melbourne right now. We're currently work-shopping and gallery-hopping our way around town trying to make the most of Craft's annual festivus for the restofus Craft Cubed. Aside from the long list of activites Ramona mentioned on Monday there is something particularly special happening this weekend. This weekend some of Melbourne (and regional victoria) premier artisans are throwing open the doors of their studios and offering punters a peek inside their creative spaces.

the lovely ladies of Sunday Morning Designs
There is nothing so enlightening or inspiring as seeing the spaces where some of your favourite makers make. For those of you in Melbourne town we suggest spending at least a couple of hours taking advantage of up close and personal access the jewellers, ceramicists, textile artists, designers and letterpressers taking part.

Natalia Milosz-Piekarska at work

We'll be winging our way from Karla Way and Natalia Milosz-Piekarska's Studio Seven Twelve in the Nicholas Building (also having an open day on the 16th and 17th just to confuse things), through Sunday Morning Designs brunswick studio, out to the home of our neon hama bead heroines Peaches and Keen at the Windsor Workshop and finally back to our local heroes The Hungry Workshop in Northcote. No doubt we'll also avail ourselves of many coffees and cakes along the way in some of our favourite cafe's as well.

If you've got a little more time to spare why not make a day of it and head out of town toward regional Victoria's creative hubs of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs and check out the work of longtime hml favourite Bridget Bodenham and new love Minna Graham. We guarantee you won't be disappointed. BECK
