    Interview: Phoebe Everill, woodworker

     

    CWC blog insta template

    Females in creative trades are few and far between, and talented woodworker Phoebe Everill is no exception. Phoebe is breaking down barriers as a third generation woodworker. Phoebe had her own renovation business before focussing her attention on handmaking fine furniture. She also teaches classes and makes custom furniture at her workshop in Drummond, Victoria.

    What drew you to become a woodworker?

    My father originally, and then just a feeling of it being a part of who I am. I get enormous satisfaction in making things,  seeing things evolve from my hands. I love everything about wood. It’s a living material and unforgiving, you can’t enforce your design upon it, and then it rewards you with wonderful texture, colour and figure. I could pass on the splinters and the dust!

    How would you describe your work?

    I have a design style that pays tribute to the Japanese, Scandinavians and Shakers. I want to make pieces that will last, are functional and still beautiful. Clean, great joinery, not too decorative.

    What has been your experience being a female tradesperson in a historically male field?

    It was tough early on as a builder, less so now. People come to me already committed to learning so my gender is largely irrelevant. I have always believed that my work would speak and this crosses barriers.

    MMPh T 21

    What does a typical day involve for you?

    Gym and office until 8am, then in the workshop either making or teaching till 6pm, followed by more office work until 7pm.  In reality, it is a joy to work long hours and to be self-employed. I wouldn’t change a thing except the admin!

    What have been some favourite recent projects or commissions?

    My most significant work this year has been Collaboration 1. This piece has been a year in the planning, designing and making.  It has been a privilege to work with two of Australia’s finest tool makers to pull off a very unique piece.

    MMP Tools 02_2

    What part of the making process do you enjoy the most?

    The problem solving, bringing the 3D image in my head to life, and then letting the design evolve without overthinking it!

    What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

    “Go wrong slowly” –  David Upfill-Brown  (my mentor). It refers to the making process and the care you need to take to bring a piece to completion.

    Studio Visit: Monique Woodward, architect

    7_wowowa_studio_kiehls aus interview

    It’s not often on just hearing a name that you get such a strong sense of the dynamism behind a creative duo, but this is just the case with WOWOWA (implied!) whose co-founders Monique and Scott Woodward forge a next-generation approach to architectural practice with a kind of positive charge often missing in professional creative circles.

    In WOWOWA Architecture & Interiors, the pair have created the kind of practice they always wanted to work in, one that prioritises artistic expression, teaching and advocacy as essential to ongoing creativity. Alongside partner Scott, Monique is a vocal advocate for improved living standards and accessibility of quality design as a tenet of modern Australian culture.

    From their glittering Tin & Ed business cards to the bold glazed red brick façade of the Finn House, WOWOWA is unafraid of a playful nod to the kitch, and their declaration of a radical postmodernist style is one beautifully tailored to bring a fresh optimism to the architecture of the everyday – the humble family home. We spoke to Monique at WOWOWA’s shopfront studio in Melbourne’s leafy Carlton North about her passion for celebrating Australian culture and why more creatives should embrace the power of marketing.

    1_Monique & Scott Woodward

    As an emerging practice, WOWOWA has a strong brand and clear creative directive – what inspired that focus and how has it shaped the way you practice?

    One of the biggest challenges we faced initially as a fledgling but ambitious creative practice was acknowledging that even if you were the greatest architect in the world, you need to be able to run a sustainable business to keep up that practice, and to successfully market yourself is a big part of that business’ success.

    I undertook a marketing course at the local TAFE and we engaged a business coach, really immersed ourselves in marketing, read a lot of business and marketing literature alongside our favourite design journals.

    We quickly realised that what we were saying to the world though our marketing – that we could do anything – was out of touch with the reality of our work at the moment. Whilst we do have a few small civic projects on the go and really enjoy the possibilities of larger scale projects, our current built reality is residential. Luckily, we love residential work, and it’s a big part of who we are as a practice, so it was important to acknowledge those roots and really emphasise its part in our core identity.

    From this we developed a strategy that allowed us to focus in on the kind of clients we love working with – those who want to create their ‘forever home’. They’re committed to a place, and are prepared to do some soul searching, and explore what it is that they really want from a home environment.

    Putting ourselves out there as a practice for professional families, with the tagline ‘life is too short for boring spaces’, we’ve found that people that subscribe to that will instantly recognise a kinship, and might know a little more of what to expect from us in the process. We can then work together and really bounce off each other in a super collaborative way. This makes the process a whole lot more enjoyable for both parties.

    How has this focus on creating a client’s ‘forever home’ influenced your work?

    It gives us license to work with our clients in really rewarding creative depth, to find out what they think about colour, sculpture or pattern, and taking that through to find out how flexible and functional spatial solutions can work for them. I think that’s one of our strengths, making small spaces work hard, and that’s one of the reasons we love renovations, the challenge of really cranking up an existing space and making it truly multi-purpose.

    Focusing on the small scale also allows us to really immerse ourselves in the application of the theory and art of creative practice. One thing is I’m a massive sucker for ornament. Ornament, in its three dimensions, really changes the way you perceive a space, and I think that’s when a space really starts to get interesting.

    What is your motivates you creatively?

    My all-time favourite design inspiration has to be the humble Hills Hoist – there is so much ingenuity and kitsch beauty in perhaps undervalued elements of Australian design history that are ripe to be to explored creatively.

    We see ourselves as a radically postmodern practice, propelling ideas forward to a new audience. Current trends suggest people are trying to revert back to modernism, and I find that quite unnatural, to be attempting to wind the clock back, and instead of creating spaces for living now, there is this tendency for blank spaces and miscellaneous design solutions; a blank floating shelf, a picture window to a non-descript view.

    Society is always moving forward, and new technologies challenge the idea of the modernist home. We pride ourselves on not getting caught up on finicky modernist details but still having a very deep focus on embedding meaning in the quality of the interiors we create. We don’t necessarily prescribe what kind of curtains you should have, but we demand a high level of client engagement, that is often so rich that at the end of this day you can guide each other to the best solution for that space.

    The nature of the construction industry means design and building programs can often stretch out over several years – how do keep up the creative energy between both clients and yourselves throughout that process?

    From the very outset, we ask that our clients engage heavily in the design process, usually starting with inspiration scrapbooks, a simple cut and paste! Often in a 50c book or using sites like Pinterest, we get them to collect things from all kinds of sources, not just completed projects in design magazines. We want them to let us in on who they are, and the more information they can give, the greater depth of engagement we can have and the better the project outcome will be.

    From a practice point of view – Mel (Bright) spoke at a recent AIA women’s day breakfast about how there’s only really been three cycles of work in her ten years of practice, which is I think is an experience shared by many architects. It feels like we’re about to hit our second cycle, which makes it exciting to see the development in our work and be proud of what we’ve achieved so far.

    How have you tailored your practice to allow ongoing teaching and community advocacy commitments alongside your design projects?

    From the outset we wanted to create the studio that we had always wanted to work in, and one that would allow us to grow into as a practice. A lot of questions arose of what was important to us as a practice; it’s collaborative, its deep in discussions, surrounded by plants, and embedded in the local community. We work fairly solidly from 9.30-5.30pm, respecting the workday, but recognise that we while could work till 10pm, it comes back to practicing what you preach – you can’t advocate to increase the standard of living and then work yourself to the bone in the process.

    It means we’re able to maintain a lot of energy in the studio throughout the day, which is slightly more optimistic than spending half an hour on The Age website at midday then having to work late into the night. I’m reading managerial books and trying to look beyond being just technically good at what we do, because that doesn’t mean we’re necessarily good managers or business owners, but we can be, so it’s a skill that needs to be learned side by side with design.

    We also implement ‘cultural Sunday’ which is to make sure we do something that a) recognises it’s important to make time to experience new things to keep that fire of creative inspiration burning and b) can be instagrammed, so yes, we’re always looking for the marketing tool!

    Studio visit: Kelsie White of K Gets Organised

    Kelsie_1-700

    Kelsie White packages a new set of cards in her home studio in Northbridge, Perth.

    By Kristen Marano

    Kelsie White is changing the stationery game with her cheeky sayings and fresh designs. Her cards challenge the need for an occasion to send a sweet note with lines like ‘You’re my favourite blanket stealer,’ and her sleekly-designed paper pads encourage people to make to-do lists they’ll actually fulfil.

    White’s childhood enthusiasm for stationery kick-started her paper goods business K Gets Organised in 2014; she has since created a collection of more than 100 products that fuse black and white sleek typography and cheerful watercolour designs such as popsicles and doughnuts.

    At only 23 years old, White is a creative woman on the move who is constantly connecting and creating. White designs and packages in her bright sunny studio in the hip neighbourhood of Northbridge, Perth, sells her paper goods at local market stalls, and keeps learning as she completes her graphic design degree.

    White is also the event host of the Perth chapter of Creative Women’s Circle, and she will launch the second event of the year this week. We recently chatted about how she got her start in stationery, her creative process, and where she plans to take her business next:

    What attracted you to paper goods? 

    I’m what I affectionately call a stationery addict. I also love a good card stock, a hardbound notebook with the perfect paper inside, and writing out my to-do list every day. There is nothing better than sending and receiving a hand-written note from someone. The nostalgia and old world charm of stationery and hand writing, from getting your pen license to writing your wedding vows, really brought me to stationery; it has made creating and designing for special, heartfelt moments so beautiful.

    Take me through your creative process.

    I usually draw from a real life experience. My favourite yellow water-colour card reads, ‘You’re just so bloomin’ lovely’, and I made it with my beautiful girlfriends in mind. I was studying and working as a florist at the time and loved giving them little left over flowers from my shifts. That’s how I created the card.

    A lot of my illustration work also comes from people around me. I recently drew some lovely popsicles for a local business called Delish Ice. I love the owner Katie and I’m so happy to have her as a friend; it was so much fun to draw happy little popsicles while thinking about her passion, drive, and kindness.

    I also love to draw from current trends; my latest planners feature doughnuts, indoor plants, and popsicles.

    Kelsie_2

    Sketches, and water-colour designs mark White’s studio walls as inspiration and new works in progress. 

    What puts you in the mood to create?

    A great cup of coffee, a beautiful cafe, and Wi-Fi. With all of these things, the world is my oyster.

    You’re successfully running your own business at such a young age. Who has influenced and inspired your journey as a small business owner? 

    I really wanted to be my own boss and push myself to try something new. I had never studied business or run a business before.

    I’ve been studying art and making art since I was very young, and I wanted to get back into creating while I was at university; I started making planners to help motivate me to complete my assignments. From there I launched a tiny collection of five planners and now have more than 100 products under my belt. This was not an easy journey, but it is by far the thing I’m most proud of doing in my life.

    My role models include Anna Rifle Bond from Rifle Paper Co., who I was lucky enough to meet in London last year at a stationery conference (they exist!), and Sass Cocker from Ask Alice in Melbourne. They both really inspired me to go out there and create beautiful paper goods.

    What can we expect from K Gets Organised in the coming months?

    A really big and exciting change that will launch around February 2016.

    In December, White will depart for a creative getaway through Europe and the United States. To follow her journey and get regular behind-the-scenes posts, check out her Instagram.

    Regional creative: Melisah May Art Studio and Workshop

    11078165_10152748275622097_4743861651756603868_n copy

    By Christina Atherton

    Being a creative can sometimes be a struggle between fulfilling a desire to create and making ends meet. Many of us have had to compromise along the way but what if the two could work seamlessly together?

    Melisah May is a Newcastle based artist who has fulfilled a lifelong dream of running her own artists studio in the heart of the city. With a background in teaching she is able to combine her two loves – art and teaching – to offer a creative hub for people to discover the joys of art while continuing to make a name for herself in the art world.

    Tell us a bit about your background?

    I’ve always wanted to be an artist and have always been involved in something creative. I completed a degree in Natural History Illustration at Newcastle University then a Certificate in Small Business Management with plans to start my own freelance practice. Unfortunately illustrators weren’t in great demand at the time so I decided to return to uni and get my teaching qualification. For the past seven years I’ve been a full time Secondary Visual Arts and Photography Teacher while building a name for myself as an artist on the side as well as holding exhibitions and teaching in London for two years. I’m not really content with staying put too long!

    As a freelance illustrator and artist, how do you get your work out there?

    Social media is obviously a big help now so I try and utilize that as much as I can. Before Facebook and Instagram, I had to get the word out there the old fashioned way – by talking to people! I found doing lots of markets helped me get my work out there and just asking people in cafes and shops if they would hang my work. I have to remind myself of those days because I find myself relying on social media way too much these days.

    You have an amazing light-filled studio in the heart of Newcastle. How did that come about?

    Completely by chance! I wasn’t looking for a studio but a friend told me about the space and I thought I’d go have a look. I fell in love and decided to take the plunge. Starting my own art studio has been my dream for a long time.  By the end of last year I had swapped full tine teaching with being a full time small business owner!

    How do you use this space to create? Does it inspire your work?

    It is definitely a very inspiring space. I still pinch myself every time I walk in! I love having so much room to move and I feel like I’m kind of developing and growing with my work as the studio develops. Everything I do in the space is promoting growth and positive experience so that environment is a catalyst for my practice

    You’ve had exhibitions in New York, London, Sydney and Newcastle. What’s the process for preparing for an exhibition?

    It’s different every time really. Just quietly, it’s usually a big stressful rush towards the end! Generally however, I will have an idea for an exhibition based on what I have been making at the time and just work on tightening that body of work to form a coherent narrative.

    Where do you get your inspiration from?

    Everywhere – music, art history, pop culture, people on the street, food – you name it! I do love books though and I would have to say the one thing that never fails to inspire me even when I’m feeling flat is wandering through a bookstore and looking at books of all descriptions. It’s one of my favourite things to do especially in used bookstores!

    20010_413769508830367_521887651475695944_n

    You also offer workshops for adults and children, is teaching something you love?

    Absolutely. I love teaching, and I always want it to be part of what I do. Nothing compares to the feeling of helping someone smile and feel accomplished.

    What’s next for you?

    I want to continue to develop the studio as a business and provide more creative and diverse opportunities for people to indulge in their inner artist. I also want to start exhibiting my own work more frequently in 2016.  I feel I have a lot to express from my experiences in this past year and I’m excited about what’s to come.

    On a quest to live a more creative life, Christina loves any type of crafty project and has tried everything from watercolours and flower arranging to paper craft and calligraphy. She has an unhealthy obsession with Instagram and when not working in freelance travel and lifestyle PR, spends her time as a mama, wannabe photographer and magazine junkie. She currently coordinates CWC events in Newcastle.
