New Craft made in Victoria

Most of you may have already heard of our fabulous new initiative, New Craft Made in Victoria. Helmed by our ever capable Business Development Manager Pip Carroll (of design agency Ambiguous Horse), New Craft is a Craft Victoria project engineered to matchmake craft practitioners with commercial institutions and businesses that don't usually engage in craft.

A recent successful partnership was between the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Belinda Hellier of Blink Design. Belinda was commissioned to produce 100 merino wool scarves that reflected the aesthetic of the ACO. What resulted was a beautiful black wool scarf screenprinted with a score by Schoenberg - who is Belinda's favourite composers!

To keep it within the family, this opportunity is available to Craft Victoria members only. Interested parties are encouraged to attend the monthly New Craft meetings chaired by Pip where you can learn more about the project and upcoming opportunities. The next meeting will be on Monday 8 August from 6-7pm. This event is free for members, and costs $10 for non-members. Please give us a call on 9650 7775 to book yourself in!
