Since I moved to Castlemaine last year I have been commuting to Melbourne to the Sow ‘n Sow studio in Fitzroy North. But a fabulous space in an old wool mill in town has become available so we’re getting ready to move our operations to Castlemaine in the middle of August. We will be leaving behind a great space that we have shared with wonderful, talented and inspiring creatives including Lauren McIvor, Billy Justice Thompson, Spencer Harrison, Kitiya Palaskas and Joe Whyte. But the hardest part will be having to say goodbye to our loyal employee August Carpenter. August has been working for Sow ‘n Sow for nearly 2 years and she’s been so incredibly accommodating, reliable and all round wonderful, I couldn’t have asked for a better team member and life without her a part of the team won’t be the same.
August has done most of the order fulfillment and product assembly for Sow ‘n Sow since baby Bonnie arrived last March. She is an extremely talented artist and has a bunch of exciting projects on the go so I have no doubt that she’ll become a household name in art circles at the least soon. And hopefully she’ll make a few guest appearances to the new studio in Castlemaine too.
