What's Good – a monthly round up of everything we're up to in Melbourne and beyond.
There is lots to look forward to in July – some much needed R&R after MBFWA and finishing production of 'Signals', our trans-seasonal collection (which is now all available to purchase in store and online!).
1. OPEN HOUSE MELBOURNE
It's Open House Melbourne's 10th year of celebrating Melbourne's built environment. The highlight of each year's program is Open House Weekend, where a selection of significant buildings across Melbourne are open to the public. This year there are over 200 buildings to visit. Our top three picks are –
STONNINGTON DEPOT:This striking building is actually a waste transfer station! The depot is all about sustainability, including water conservation, solar energy, and stormwater quality treatment.
SIGNAL: SIGNAL is the last surviving signal box of Flinders Street Station – and now it's a cool creative arts studio for young people and emerging artists.
AUSTRALIAN TAPESTRY WORKSHOP: The Australian Tapestry Workshop is the only studio of its kind in Australia, dedicated to the production of hand-woven contemporary tapestries.
2. LAILA SAKINI & LUCY VAN
Our friend Laila has released the EP 'Figures' with artist Lucy Van, which has been on repeat in our studio lately. Happy listening!
3. NO ORDER MARKET WINTER WORKSHOPS
Our friends at NOM are hosting a series of workshops every Sunday morning in July, based around the common theme of rituals. First up is a ceramics workshop with CCLAUD. Tickets and more information available at the NOM website.

5. PENINSULA HOT SPRINGS
We're really looking forward to skipping out of the city and being a tourist for the day at the Peninsula Hot Springs. The geothermal springs are a nice escape for the winter cold.
