Craft Hatch: The Graduate Edition

A couple of weeks ago a very special edition of Craft Hatch took place. Consisting only of graduating students from institutions across Melbourne, the market was organised to assist in fundraising for these students' end-of-year exhibitions. A worthy cause indeed!

7 groups took part from RMIT, Monash, NMIT and Box Hill TAFE and there was a plethora of work on display. Ranging from handprinted t-shirts, to ceramic egg-shaped vessels that fit into each other babushka-style, to elastic chain accessories, there was something for everyone (and we're not just saying that for the sake of it!)

Don't forget to continue supporting these fabulous students by visiting their end-of-year exhibitions later this year. Details to follow. In the meantime, do pop by RMIT Ceramics auction and sale to take place on Tuesday 6 October at RMIT's Ceramics studio (Building 4, Level 1 Basement, Bowen Street off Latrobe Street, Melbourne). Viewing commences at 5pm, and the auction starts at 6.30pm.
