Handmade in Melbourne is a great little guide to 200 of Melbourne's makers in a wide range of media. There are too many categories to list here, of course the one I like the best is Millinery & I am delighted to tell you that I am included. If you are interested in accessing items that are well designed, made by hand & produced in limited quantities or one off then I can recommend this book. I have copies for sale in the studio for the recommended price of $29.95. The Nicholas Building open studios 2009 will be Thursday 27th August and Friday 28th August. Many of the artesans who are opening their studios for that event are featured in Handmade in Melbourne, my studio will be open and I will be showcasing cute hair accessories, new season spring racing millinery and some end of season bargains. This event is a great oportunity to gain some insight into this wonderful building and its tennants. Early Christmas presents & self indulgent shopping come to mind.
