Marrickville Open Studio Trail happens for one weekend every year, coinciding with Art Month Sydney. I've never managed to make it along, even though, many of these stunning artist studios are within walking distance. This year, with the girls in tow, we scooted to a few studios and discovered so much beauty, generosity, creativity and magic hidden behind unassuming walls. We only scratched the surface of all the discovering that could be done, I'm already looking forward to next year.
1. Lisa Hoelzl of The Bakehouse and one of her pots.
2. Inside The Assembly on Sydenham Rd - a shared art space containing potters, textile designers, woodworkers and a seriously talented florist / illustrator.
3 - 6. Inside Scratch Art Space, where textile designer Georgia whipped up some magic parcels for the girls, using salt left over from a performance.
7. Wandering through Mess With It.
8. Alli Sebastian Wolf's creative space.
In completely unrelated news, I'm thinking of stopping blogging (not that I was ever that consistent anyways). Feels a bit dead out there - other bloggers have either become full-on businesses (which is great for them) or jumped over to instagram. I know there is still a few of you, but I don't know, this isn't the vibrant, exciting pastime it once was. Do you think it's time to move on? Call it quits? Or is that just me?
Ps although Hossein Derakhshan is from a totally different world to me, and used blogs in a very different way, I enjoyed this article and reading his perspective on the death of the web.
