The group of 6, sat quietly chatting among themselves, crotchet cottons in hand. The cost? $30 per person for a 2 hour class. Knitting and crocheting are incredibly relaxing and you can do it anywhere; on the train, bus, plane and especially if you're waiting for an appointment, like at the doctors. I's the perfect time to practice.
Chatting with the owner, Libby Taylor, it became apparent this wasn't your average gift shop. All items are handmade by Australian artists and crafters. Libby is all for authentic Australian art/craft - no cheap stuff from overseas on these shelves. I love supporting Australian businesses like this and it's pleasing to see they still exist. Libby was also trying her hand at crocheting.
Libby explained she runs lots of workshops and you can check her website to read more about them. Last weekend there were a bunch of people hammering away learning how to make their own jewellery. The teacher Jemica Ostrofski, travelled from the Lockyer Valley to take a group. Read more about her here.
So, if you have a free morning and are not sure what to do with yourself, may I suggest a drive to Sandgate, a walk along the foreshore, a coffee at the markets in the main street and pop around the corner to Indie Made. I couldn't think of a more pleasant way to spend a Sunday.
