About the Exhibition:

The 2018 Craft ACT members show was a celebration and exploration of the Canberra region’s distinct design identity defined by place, craftsmanship and experimentation. 

Placemaking is designing with the past, present and future in mind, to develop identity and pride, and to increase social and cultural capital. Canberra is a city of design and a place of makers who bring skills, knowledge, dedication and commitment to create their craft and nourish our community. Acclaimed designers, makers and craftspeople ­– including jewellers, glass and textiles artists, ceramicists, fashion and furniture designers ­– are globally connected but choose to live, work and make in the Canberra region. For nearly 50 years, Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre has supported these artists and helped to establish a creative and closely-knit community.

PLACE MAKERS was inspired by the thoughts of acclaimed Japanese architect (and distinguished DESIGN Canberra 2018 collaborator) Kengo Kuma: a place is ‘rich’ not because of its natural environment, resources, or skilled craftspeople but instead gains its value through the relationship between these things. You can view the works here.

My contribution was a  ‘Cubed Ottoman’ showcasing one of our most popular designs ‘Leadbeater Forrest’ the design features hand-drawn illustrations of two critically endangered species the Leadbeater Possum and Helmeted Honeyeater. The design has been digitally printed onto a lush velvet cloth and upholstered over a cube frame.

Our Leadbeater Forrest design is available as a print by the lineal meter on wallpaper, commercial grade fabric and linen, to order samples or meters shop here. The cubed Ottoman is custom made to order, if you would like to purchase contact us – POA.

About the Project:

Nothing beats being able to show you the interiors that have been beautifully designed and styled using our wallpaper and textile designs. Thanks to Claire, interior designer extraordinaire from The Design Ward for the opportunity.

This particular bedroom refurbishment was part of an interior design project for one of Claire’s clients in W.A. The subtle use of colour and the minimalistic furnishings compliment the Blossom wallpaper perfectly. I especially love the glass bulb shape lamp that hangs down in the center of the room, and the pop of colour shown here with the use of the red cushion.

To Order:

Our Blossom wallpaper is printed on an extra wide non-woven paper which allows for the scale of the design to be fully appreciated. It’s available in a range of colours to suit all tastes and decor, for both commercial and residential interiors.

If you would like to get the look and use our Blossom wallpaper for one of your projects please order samples here.

Best,

Tamara

BANKSIA MEDLEY – NEW DESIGN

It’s always a satisfying feeling to add a new design to your collection of works. This creation was inspired by the Banksia Integrifolia, commonly known as coast banksia and is found growing along the east coast of Australia. I have added a branch of Grevillea and a few much loved Australian Birds, such as the Blue Wren, Regent Honeyeater and the Scarlet Honeyeater, these can be found scattered amongst the Banksia leaves. The design features details that are all hand-drawn in graphite pencil and then digitally coloured in Photoshop, with the spray painted background adding a contemporary touch. It’s available printed as a wallpaper, commercial upholstery fabric and on crisp Linen. You can order samples here.
