Can’t help myself. Have decided to have a pop up weekend shop at our new place. It’s so lovely here that it felt wrong not to, so – AS WELL AS – doing a pop up @thehappenstore on the 1st Dec, we are running our own the following week on the 8 and 9th. Of course this has put me in a major frenzy of making which is stressful but so very enjoyable. After all, making things makes us feel good. Ain’t that right? November 14th, 2018julie
Manda wanted to take Virginia off grid so, with a little help from a bunch of willing strangers we pushed her by hand to this spot. Now all we need is some help with sorting out some solar power. @kal_mac we are ready for you! November 10th, 2018julie
And then I discovered that if you pull up the freshly dead native lily ( aka patersonia – I know the name of that one!) it is still soft and pliable and creates a lovely droop and then I guess will dry in this position. It’s rather exciting moving to a new home and discovering what happens to the plants through the full season. Next month we will have been here a full year. Man it’s gone fast.

RoughTrack gallery is now open with our very first show – a reprise of Mandas Imaginary Albums. And the turntable is spinning some retro tunes. Get down get on down #imaginaryalbumsrocks #roughtrackgallery November 3rd, 2018julie
Here’s some blooming marvellous news for you spontaneous adventurer types – we’ve had a cancellation and now both cabins are amazingly available this weekend, precisely as Blackheath goes off with the Rhodo Festival and we open Rough Track Gallery to the public for the very first time! Fancy a bit of creative excitement? Or maybe escaping the heat on a cool walk through the Grand Canyon rainforest beneath us? Or even take your last chance to check out the waratahs before the season ends? Go on, book a cabin, or invite your mates and book them both! And because we are so down to the wire we will take a booking for one night. PM Panda @roughtrackcabins or click the link in the bio to book online. #roughtrackcabins #bluemountainsnsw #blackheathnsw #visitnsw #australiannatives #waratah November 1st, 2018julie
So this page features my instagram posts. Here's where you'll see the things that inspire me and what I'm making - artworks, designs, products, collaborations and so on. You'll see what I'm making from my #ScrapCloth pieces, what's happening in my Blue Mountains studio and at #roughtrackcabins, our two ironstone cabins where you can come and stay. You’ll get to see what's going on with my #lookdrawprint workshops when they are on, and find out if I’m doing something special like a wee Cloth pop-up shop. I'd love to keep you in the loop about all of this. If you'd like that too, I reckon you should follow me on Instagram and Facebook.
