Our New Event Series 'Meet The Makers' @Mercedes me

Events

We hope you’ll bounce out of bed on an upcoming Friday or Saturday morning, to join us for an inspiring new series we’re hosting at Mercedes me in Melbourne!

Meet The Makers @ Mercedes me brings together some of our favourite creatives, who will chat with Lucy about their craft, and walk us through their unique creative process with live demonstrations. All up, we’ll be hosting 12 events(!) over the next six months, featuring a huge diversity of creative practitioners, from floristry to ceramics, weaving to hand lettering, furniture making to leathercraft, and more!

TODAY bookings are open for our first four events, taking place in August and September! The star-studded line-up includes weaver Tammy Kanat, calligraphy girl-gang The Letterettes, ceramicist Tantri Mustika, and florist Hattie Molloy.

All events are free, but seats are limited, so reserve your spot now!

You may have heard about (or even attended – thankyou!) our TDF Talks @ Mercedes me over the past couple of months (…there are still a few seats left for our final event, with Tim Ross on July 31st!).

After such a wonderful reception, we’re heading back to the venue soon, with a new line-up of events: Meet The Makers @ Mercedes me!

These sessions are a little different, though; with just 15-30 tickets available per session, Meet The Makers will enable you to get up close with our creative guests, observing their techniques, hearing about their career path, and, in some cases, you’ll even have a chance to get involved. Hope to see you there!
