It’s 2018 and in Australia, more people are living in apartments than ever before. Assemble want to help us learn how to live in them better – creatively, openly, and simply.
Assemble are hosting a new workshop series led by Melbourne creatives, Living not Decorating, bringing to life key philosophies of the Assemble Model. With a focus on the longevity of great design and well-lived, well-loved homes, the Living not Decorating series puts forward a selection of five workshops over two weeks that teaches real skills and promotes the simplicity of good living.
Local plywood experts Jem Selig Freeman and Laura Woodward of Like Butter will be hosting a three-hour-intensive at their Kensington workshop in which participants will leave having made their very own plant stand.
Wannabe green thumbs get schooled in all things indoor plants by Maxi Walker of Pop Plant, who specialises in greenery for city dwellers.
Free to Feed’s Nayran Tabiei hosts a cooking class exploring the importance of cooking for community, sharing sentimental recipes from her Syrian background.
Melbourne’s golden girl illustrator, Alice Oehr, will lead a two-hour scribble fest for kids, where littlies will be scrawling on the walls (literally) of The Assemble Space at 122 Roseneath Street.
To mark the closure of the Living not Decorating series, Pianist, composer and sound designer Grace Ferguson alongside modern jazz improvisers Albrecht La’Brooy (Alex Albrecht and Sean La’Brooy) will perform at a listening event for an afternoon of ambience.
It’s all going down between September 30th to October 14th. Tickets will sell fast – so get in quick!
