Craftbase has proven a wonderful way for members to promote their work, and for visitors to experience the wonders of what gets hand made today. Unfortunately, technology has not been too kind to the system and the web hosts computers crashed recently, taking the site down with them. They are getting their computers off and repaired at the moment and will be back to us when it is up and running.
Usually you can find Craftbase at craftbase.craftvic.asn.au.
Ironically, this is happening just as we have crashed our own galleries -- this time deliberately so that we can subject the floors to some long-overdue cleaning and repairing. The next exhibition opening on Thursday will be our major Melbourne Festival show, including Best in Show. A good opportunity therefore to show off the best of ourselves.
