It's been two weeks since I completed my residency at The Clay House. After a challenging start I produced some decent work, explored new designs that have been rattling around my head for months and learnt some screen printing techniques, thanks to Elaine Bradley.
I loved Fremantle. It's a small town (officially a city), but it has a heap of energy for it's size. The dockside cranes dominate the skyline. I love that they look like creatures, gobbling up the shipping containers. Massive ships glide in and out of the harbour constantly. It feel like a healthy environment for indie business, I loved so many of the coffee shops, eateries and shops.
Definite recommendations: Moore & Moore, Kakula Sisters, The Monk Brewery & Kitchen, Little Creatures and especially The Raw Kitchen!
