Event description
Scanlan & Makers studio is transformed into a chromatic-wonderland and hosts a Q&A that asks 'what does truly local colour look like?'

About this Event

Sip local beverages, snack on local tidbits and listen to a discourse on the importance of locally made paint and colour for the built environment.

If you're a colour aficionado looking for inspiration, or just looking for some sweet hangs on a Thursday evening, come down to Scanlan & Makers Collingwood studio and immerse yourself in beautiful, Melbourne-made slow-colour.

Join Scanlan & Makers as we launch our new 'Local Colour' project: an artisan colour collection made with local ingredients, the hues derived from the local environment as seen through the eyes of local Victorian designers, artists and creatives. Unique colour, made by hand and designed for a Victorian light and lifestyle.

We're very excited, so we have collaborated with our friends Mockturtle and Justine McAllister to transform the warehouse studio into an epic painted wonderland inside and out for your viewing pleasure.

On the night, we will host a panel discussion around the notion of Local Colour with expert panellists including award winning interior designer Kate Challis, and more to be announced.

The discussion will pose the questions: how can materiality and colour can transform our experience of the built environment? What does a local palette look like? Who decides? What are the advantages of choosing local in the design and construction industry?

The wonderful contributors to the local colour range include:

Mike Baker , Kate Berry , Kate Challis , Collarts School of Interior Design , Cassie Leatham, Elyse Macdonald , Justine McAllister , Mockturtle (Meg Milton and Joe Peter) , Heather Nette-King , The Ownership Project (curated by Kylie Blackley), Sarah Weston , Jordan Wood .
