Craft Victoria made me very happy yesterday when I discovered on their ‘clog‘ (blog) an extremely extensive list of all the graduate exhibitions happening across town this month, as the school year draws to a close for Melbourne’s design students!

Grad shows are often not very widely advertised, and I always have trouble keeping abreast of what’s going on, so I was very excited when I came across this round-up!

The list below has been taken directly from the Craft Vic blog (hope they don’t mind!), and focuses mainly on craft-based courses… a great place to start to see the best from Melbourne’s up and coming designers!
