Weekend at The Collective - New and Bold

We've restocked our shelves with new designs, from handmade books to new textiles, from the artists and artisans.

Today, from 2pm to 3pm, artist Janet Potter will show you how to turn your old magazine into a sculptural Christmas tree.

We're also celebrating the bold ideas at The Collective, from the bench by Victor D. fashioned from the floor joists of an old church to the dramatic silver jewellery by Egan At Large, inspired by the need for jewellery that would fit.

Who would think that you could be inspired by the simple rubber band? When artist Joanna Strong looks and paints this everyday object she sees tension, resistance and intense color.

Sometimes the boldest ideas are the simplest.
