Meet the Makers at Shelley Panton Studio

Shelley-Panton CWC Full Member Shelley Panton has  a stack of fantastic guests planned for her Meet the Maker guest speaker evenings this year.

Shelley started the series in 2012. As a small studio-based maker and retailer of many other local artisans she was often asked the story behind her work and the many other makers she stocks. This prompted Shelley to host a regular event after-hours at her shop, featuring various special guest speakers and serving local wine and food. If you are interested in a creative or small business career change, or simply enjoy engaging with creative folk, it's a great night out.

Coming up on Wednesday 20 March is artist Rowena Martinich.

You'd likely know of Rowena's work - she uses a combination of commercial fluorescent paint and transparent film which is then inserted into buildings or sites notable for their generous use of glass. She is now also delving into homewares products.

Join Shelley for an intimate and artful Q & A evening with Rowena to hear her more about her art practice. Tickets are available here, and as a bonus you'll not only enjoy the surrounds of Shelley's gorgeous shop at night, but sample some of her divine cooking and fine taste in vino! :)

Shelley has generously offered a free ticket (valued at $28) to any Meet the Maker event this year to the first two people who sign up for CWC Full Membership before Wednesday 20 March 2013. Sign up here and we will be in contact about the prize if you are one of the lucky two!

And if you can't make it along in March, future Meet the Maker guests include Sarah Murphy, Sarah and Chris Appleford, and Toni Lawler. Mark your diaries!
