It's that time again, the annual Nicholas Building Open Studio event.
For those unfamiliar with the Nicholas Building, it's a rare beast in Melbourne. Placed bang smack in the centre of the CBD on the corner of Flinders Lane and Swanston Street, the Nicholas Building is 9 wonderful floors almost entirely devoted to housing creatives of all dominions, from jewellers to painters to graphic designs, architects, sound producers, milliners, cobblers, the list goes on.
Open Studios is a two day event that opens up the doors of many different studios giving the public an opportunity to see where the magic happens and view and buy work directly from the makers.
Karla and I will be opening our doors up for both nights, so come by, have a chat, drink some wine and check out some of the work we'll have available for show and sell.
- Hint. This event gets quite packed, leaving the one operating lift a little hard to catch. Try and make your way to the top floor straight up before you have a drink as it's much easier to make your way down the stairs after a few glasses than it is to climb 9 floors.

19th - 20th August
4-9pm both nights.
We're on the 5th floor, studio 9.
See you there!
