Introducing... Craft Victoria to Japanese tourists!

Some of our long term readers may remember Sandy Bennett, one of our lovely shopgirls from a while back. While she is no longer at Craft Vic (but still relatively close by at Mattt's shop and studio!), Sandy recently got in touch with us to let us know that she had written a sweet review on Craft Vic for a Japanese website:

Hi. I’m Sandy and I will try to be a bit of a gallery guide for you as you search out interesting art in Melbourne. I enjoy making things (mostly out of textiles) and I am addicted to travel because I think travel, like art gives me a new perspective on the world I live in. I love living and working in Melbourne because there are so many wonderfully crafty, creative people everywhere you look and l enjoy seeing what other people are making, drawing, sculpting and designing because I love seeing the world through other people’s eyes.


While a lot of Melbourne’s galleries are still busy painting the walls and getting themselves ready for the first exhibitions of the year, up the top of Flinders Lane Craft Victoria is already off to a running start. Make sure you go in with some time to spare because there is plenty to keep you downstairs for more than a little while.

If you can tear yourself away from COUNTER – which is the shop to go to for anything from quirky locally made toys to glassware and jewellery you will find yourself waylaid by three artists who will introduce you to new ways of looking at the world around you.

メルボルン中のギャラリーが今年最初のエキシビジョンの準備のため、未だ店内の壁をペイントするのに忙しくしているにも関わらず、Flinders Lane Craft Victoriaはとっくに準備万端。あなたを店内に引き留めるたくさんの作品が階下でお待ちかねだ。是非時間の余裕のある時に訪れて欲しい。カウンターには昨日までの世界観をそっくり塗り変えてしまうような3人のアーティストの作品が並ぶ。きっとそこから離れがたくなってしまう事だろう。

Thanks Sandy! For more, click here to read the full article.
