FINALLY- We are super excited to announce that this year we will be part of one of Australia’s top Art & Design events - The NGV Melbourne Design Week (MDW2022).
We are hosting a very special event!
This event is part of Melbourne Design Week 2022, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV. #MelbourneDesignWeek #NGV @NGVMelbourne
“Waste not, want not” is an extensive demonstration on various methods and techniques of furniture restoration by business owner and restorer Edwin Fox. His small and independent furniture restoration business open its doors for the first time to offer insight into the world of all things old, rusty and mid-century. With an ever growing interest and emphasis on the topic of reuse, repair and sustainability, there has never been a greater time to invest into the future: up-skill, re-think and re-educate. We often ask ourselves the questions, how can I make a better world? Or, can I save that chair on the side of the road?
We are hosting a three-hour workshop demonstration over two identical sessions in restoring vintage, retro and mid-century furniture. Edwin wants to share, encourage and educate anyone who has an interest in furniture, restoration, design and history. Within the workshop session, a variety of methods, skills, tips and materials are demonstrated to show participants how to restore certain pieces of furniture.
Melbourne Design Week is Australia's largest annual design event.
Melbourne Design Week 2022 will transform Melbourne and parts of regional Victoria over 11 days with a series of exhibitions, talks, films, tours and workshops, responding to the theme: Design the world you want.
See and collect new work from established and emerging designers, hear from industry leaders and take part in tours and workshops that reveal and celebrate the impact of design in shaping our world.
