Well there’s a lot going on this weekend if you like loud cars or loud music but either way there’s lots to do in Melbourne and locally. This beautiful Arts and Crafts house at 32 – 34 The Eyrie in Eaglemont has caught my eye (Miles Real Estate images below via realestate.com.au) – Chadwick House by architect Harold Desbrowe-Annear – which is currently on the market for a heritage housing lover out there. Speaking of heritage, I’m hoping to see The Krystyna Campbell-Pretty Fashion Gift at the NGV International before winter – a gift indeed with over 200 garments celebrating Parisian haute couture fashion with names including Worth, Dior, Chanel, Issey Miyake, Alexander McQueen and John Galliano.
Also coming up locally this week is the opening of Journey Through Life exhibition at Hatch Contemporary Arts Space in Ivanhoe featuring art works by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre Youth Centre and Sha Sarwari as well as the now sold out Banyule Changemakers Festival and Banyule Women in Business Lunch at the Rosanna Golf Club – best to get in quick next year! If you are interested in supporting refugees and asylum seekers you may be interested in the Free to Feed cooking classes run in Thornbury and Northcote or run in your own home for parties of 10 or more. Gift vouchers are also available if you have a friend or family in mind.
Finally, I am sharing the local love by supporting some of the small businesses in Banyule run by friends of mine who I’d like to see stay in the area for the long-term. Why? Because interesting small businesses like these are the life and soul of communities like ours. From time to time I’ll be doing shout outs about Nikki, Jonno, Luis and Pamela and their respective businesses ranging from a personal training studio, local cafe with a Latin American twist, barber shop and yoga classes but for now you’ll find them here.
