Exclusive items and accessories, as well as art & much more
JULL Street Mall has a "new kid on the block" with a stunning artist's hub and pop-up shop. It is being run by Cob Designs eco-fashion designer, Charlene O'Brien and it is called Artist Retail Collective, or ARC. This venture has attracted local artists and is a non-profit social enterprise.

The project has taken quite some time to get going and is supported by the City of Armadale.

The City has said "We needed some space activated in Jull Street Mall, and thought the artist collective would bring a good vibe to the area." It is an arts community hub based in the heart of Armadale - in the Jull Street Mall.

This shop gives local artists/vendors the chance to showcase their wares and also gives local residents, as well as others, the chance to see these wares and purchase the artwork and other creations on offer. It is a "social enterprise" which is scheduled to open soon, and in the meantime, they have set up a pop-up store in the Jull Street Mall for your Christmas shopping.

This will be a great opportunity for you to get exclusive things - you will find beautiful and unique gifts for Christmas, and at the same time, this will support local people. Items available to buy include the following:

Ceramic wares
Fabric art
Handmade artisan furniture
Leather bags
Handbound books
And more

1. Sarah Davies is a "narrative artist" and her artwork tells a story.

Sarah uses acrylics, watercolours, printmaking and bookbinding to make delightful art objects as well as functional things like notebooks, cards, jewellery, woven baskets, and bags. Sarah loves doing this work and likes to share this process with others, as well as running art classes and workshops for kids.

Sarah says "Once I've made something and put it out there, the rest of the story is out of my hands. It's a way of interacting with the world, of having a conversation about things that are often difficult or impossible to say using words."

2. Nicole & Bryce Polmear are Altruist Furnishings, a duo working in the Armadale/Kelmscott region. They use items that other people throw out as well as timber, and out of these, they create one of a kind artistic conversation pieces, which are also functional pieces of furniture and homewares.

Altruist Furnishings' "primary motivation is one of sustainability, with a strong emphasis on uniqueness, drawing inspiration from the environment from which their materials come".

They do not use new products and all their products are made from the things that the components used to be! You can now see some of the fascinating furnishings at this pop-up shop.

3. Brenda Warner is a "textile aficionado from Embroidered Memories - Feltnitnstitch" and ARC member artist.

Brenda does fabulous inventions with combinations of fabric, colour and creative stitches. Brenda is continually finding innovative ways to create these accessories and designs scarves, wraps, vest, jackets, ponchos and textile gifts for people of all ages.
