CRAFT UP LATE / open studio @ Outer Island

Outer Island will be opening its studio to go behind the scenes in what it is like to design and produce hand-made sustainable products in a modern digital age.

As Outer Island's mission is to bring awareness to the magic of native plants and animals by bringing them into your home through our products, we will also be turning a portion of our studio into an educational 'Outer Island' to share our passion for art, design and the natural world.

WHEN: Wednesday 11th October 2017

TIME: 5pm - 8pm

WHERE: Studio One / 105 Oxford St, Darlinghurst, Sydney 2010

PUMPKIN CARVING WORKSHOP @ Royal Botanical Gardens

Celebrate Halloween this year by taking your pumpkin carving skills up a notch in a fun, spooky setting at the gardens. Learn how to carve pumpkins with imaginative designs, from basic to elaborate. All skills welcome and carving templates will be provided (including botanic and Australiana) or create your own design.

Various methods and techniques will be reviewed and discussed, all to the backdrop of a haunted soundtrack. Pumpkin carving tools will be provided and while you work on your design, we'll roast the seeds for you to enjoy and take home. Bring your own pumpkin and leave with a masterpiece to light at your front door.

MEET THE MAKER @ Australian Design Centre

Create your very own mushroom drawing in colour to take home and hang on your wall. Outer Island artist Stephanie Chambers will show you how to use crayons in ways you never imagined. She'll demonstrate how to draw a mushroom, how to colour it in so it looks three-dimensional and how to use colour theory while doing it.
