Guest Post by Project Space artist Bianca Librandi

We really are very sad to be saying goodbye to Bianca Librandi at the end of this month. Her six month tenancy in the Project Space has come to an end and we invited her to share her experiences with you here. Don’t forget, this means that there is a vacancy coming up in the Project Space in June and we invite you to apply. It sounds like Bianca has had a fantastic experience and you could too.

How the last 6 months has flown by! I’m very sad to say my time at Northcity4 is coming to an end this week. It has by far been one of the best decisions I have ever made for my jewellery career. I am so grateful to have been surrounded by the most talented and creative contemporary jewelers in Melbourne. Not only are they super talented but they all are so warm and really share a feeling of community in the space, whether it be through casual conversations or through monthly lunchtime catch ups.

In my time at Northcity4 I produced and refined my production range “Celestial Spheres” for my label White November. I was lucky enough to participate in The Big Design Market in December last year and now regularly partake in design and craft markets all over Melbourne and Sydney. Being able to show and talk about my work to the other artist was an invaluable experience.

I was lucky enough to participate in one of the Sublimation Workshops offered by Northcity4 and taught by Anna Davern. I really enjoy this class and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in gaining new skills. The class was run seamlessly and I was always busy. The possibilities were endless and I really had fun with it.

Just like to say a big thank you to all the amazing people (and poodle Humphrey) who run and work within Northcity4! I’m sure connections and friendships I have formed over the past 6 months will continue to blossom. x
