our new Workroom + Shop

So, we've been opened for just over a week now, and I think it's about time we shared some images with you. There'll be more, and there'll be changes. But for now have a look at our beautiful Hey Maker! Workroom + Shop.












I love spending time in our new space. Such a gloriously beautiful shop - one of the most iconic Art Deco buildings in our town; the high ceilings and big front windows make for lots of natural light all day long. The corner position, close to the river, means cool afternoon breezes coming through our front door. 
The hard work put in by many friends to get the once dull walls now bright and pure white - oh thank you all. It has changed the feel and look of the space dramatically. A place can breathe again.
The gathering, collecting, sourcing of handcrafted locally made works and carefully curating (merchandising) them within our walls has been a beautiful and extremely enjoyable process. 
The meeting of people who walk into our space is the best thing of all. The connections, the conversations, the gatherings, the stories, the sharing, the enjoyment and the smiles. 

Come along and see our new Hey Maker! Workroom + Shop. We're on the corner of Commercial Road and Proudfoots Lane, Murwillumbah. Look out for our art installation windows and the yarn covered streetposts....
