The Indispensables – Beautiful wearable rosettes by Leah Muddle (co-owner of Milly Sleeping, amongst many other creative pursuits). ps. Is Leah Muddle not the most brilliant name? I would die for a name of this cuteness.
In case you didn’t know (unlikely), the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival is now upon us… and whilst I have pretty much zero interest in attending any kind of fashion runway show, I must say I am quite curious about some of the interesting offerings in the LMFF cultural program.
Insert Coin Here is one such project, curated by two ladies from Craft Victoria‘s talented team – Nella Themelios & Kim Brockett. From tomorrow, Insert Coin Here will see two gumball-style vending machines placed in various locations within the CBD, each containing a curated collection of limited edition object-based mini artworks. All in all there are 600 mini artworks included in the project, produced by over 60 Melbourne-based artists, designers and craftsters – including TDF faves Amy Borrell, Dawn Tan and Dell Stewart… and so many more!
For just $2.00, you can have your twist of the gumball machine, and walk away with a sweet little handmade artwork by one of these talented local artists. How awesome is that? Plus, who knows, perhaps one day a handful of these artists will have reached the giddy heights of international fame, and your precious little keepsake might be worth some serious $!
ps) I have a sneaking suspicion this little show is gonna be slightly, unexpectedly HUGE, and the 600 artworks will disappear in, like, 48 hrs. Don’t say I didn’t warn you…!
This week Insert Coin Here can be found at Craft Victoria, 31 Flinders Lane, CBD.
From March 7th the project will move to various other locations – for a full list pop over and visit the Insert Coin Here blog!
Oh I do love these behind-the-scenes gumball machine madness shots on the Insert Coin Here blog! Cute. These girls must have had such crazy fun pulling it all together!
