It’s time to celebrate the art of craft

Be part of the art as the Craft Contemporary festival comes to Boroondara.

Whether you’re an avid lover of craft, picked up a crafting hobby during Melbourne’s COVID-19 lockdowns, or are seeking a new creative outlet, this month’s Craft Contemporary offers inspiration aplenty.

There are many ways to take part, with a range of exhibitions, talks and workshops running throughout the month of October. A highlight is the pompom-inspired art installation APOMAWISH, led by artist, designer and pompom aficionado Rachel Burke.

Based on the premise that anyone can make a pompom, all members of the community are invited to participate.

Hundreds have already sent in their creations, along with ‘a wish for the future’, to become part of the installation. You can still contribute – simply visit our Craft Contemporary page. for a template, instructions and postal details.
