For the month of August the annual Craft Cubed festival is here to inspire Melbourne. This year’s theme is The Art of The Hand Made and Northcity4 is excited to be a part of the calendar of events.
If you are keen to get into the art of the hand made,
book in to one of our workshops or join us for Open Studio – or both. (sorry! both workshops are now sold out! To be the first to hear about our Northcity4 events sign up to our mailing list)
Saturday August 23rd RING IN A DAY workshop with Sam Mertens (sold out but we’re running it again on 22nd November)

Northcity4 Open Studio

Join us for a fun day at the studio…
Jewellery for Sale
There will be contemporary jewellery for sale by some of the talented NC4 artists.
You will be treated to skilled demonstrations by the wonderful Nicky Hepburn at 12pm (cuttlefish casting) & Anna Davern at 2pm (make a ring in 10 mins!).
RAW Jewellery Workshop
The NC4 team will be holding the Recycle Assemble Wear workshop in our education space: make a spontaneous piece of jewellery using recycled materials, simple assembly techniques, and walk out wearing it! – By gold coin donation
Weave A Star
We will be beaming Maryann Talia Pau in via You Tube to help us run a 1 million stars workshop, learn how to weave stars to end violence. The stars will become part of the 2014 Big Design Market installation.
Grandpa’s Shop Studio (Canada) Remote Studio Visit
We’ll be hosting a live feed projection with Karla McEachern from Grandpa’s Shop Studios in Manitoba, Canada. She has sent some of her work to us so you can check it out, in the flesh and chat to her via Skype.
Snap up a succulent, seeds or fresh birds eye chillies from our Plant Stall – we are raising funds to develop a clean air garden inside our workspace. This exciting, green, project is being led by the talented Inari Kiuru.
To keep you all warm from the inside we will be serving our hand made mulled wine, chai tea, and organic snags in bread. (Ali’s mulled wine is to-die-for – ed.)
Look forward to seeing you there.
work by Anna Davern and other NC4 artists will be for sale
