My Creative Space

There are a few things happening here today. First of all a little sneak peek of my new tutorial that I am working on. Remember that abstract experiment with painting on fabric? Well I am using purple abstract for my Fashionista Bag tutorial, combining it with leather. Stay tuned, I will complete it in a next few days.

Another thing that I am working on today is building up stock for pre-Christmas studio market, tea towels and pillow cases are to be made today. I will post more information about our market later here and on my Facebook page.

Weekend

As I mention before it was studio market day on Saturday, which turned out to be great fun, very casual and relaxing. Visitors started to come up to our stalls before we had our goods on the tables. Few ladies from Extra Texture came to visit us and to purchase our fabrics, big thank you to them for their support. And thank you to Carizza for organizing this event, I met wonderful people, hopefully we will do it again.

On Sunday I had a stall at Creative Lane Market at Marrickville’s beautiful Town Hall building where I met Asako Sakai, great girl who kindly offered me so much needed cup of coffee in the morning. She is busy mum of two who is working  from home running her handmade business Piggledee, she makes cute adorable everyday baby items from Japanese textiles, check her website, and I love the way she writes on her blog, very relaxing and easy. Thank you Asako for making my day!

And surprise! No pictures today supporting my text, stupidly I have deleted all photos of my weekend from my camera, don’t ask me how but I did.  hmm….this is unusual..

To Market, To Market

BlueBerry Ash was kindly invited

by Suki Tam a Creative Lane director and creator

to participate in this special event.

Please come and meet me at Creative Lane.

July is promising to be a busy month for BlueBerry Ash.

I’m working on new fabrics and products, and organizing market stalls for the next months.  Collectivism printing studio also will open its doors at the end of July for one day only, where you can meet all of us in person, participate in workshops and buy some goodies.

I will post details here later on, stay tuned.

Building up stock

I spent past few days in a studio printing as many quarters of fabric as I can, for an upcoming Finders Keepers, time flying fast and I am worrying I won’t be able to get done all the things that I have planed, but hey, I am trying and most important I am having fun!

Inside…

…it’s not permanent but temporary, a community space where we are artists, designers, printers sharing one corner. Myself and other four girls Anna, Carizza, Cecilia and Laura grouped together, to bring best out of each other, help printing, share enthusiasm, inspiration and various business responsibilities. It’s comforting to work knowing that we have each other to support, push and motivate to go forward. We named our collaboration “Collectivism”. We are all from different backgrounds with our own ideas and styles, and this is great because it is creates a variety of products for Collectivism. If you want to check out what we are creating or if you just want to chat, please visit us at Finders Keepers Market  in Sydney on 20 and 21 of May where we will have a table!
