Chances are if you are reading this, you are interested in the movement of
Reusing, Recycling, Upcycling, Reducing.
Or perhaps you are a lover of high quality handmade jewellery. Noosa Artisan has some great things happening around all of this. However, firstly:
The initiative we are all experiencing is awareness, of ourselves , each other and our beautiful regions. The latest global awareness is plastic and its harm on our environment regarding its slow decomposition rate. With debates and opinions on the plastic bag ban now make everyone aware, and people focusing their attention on it, the movement on plastic and reducing is emphasised.
Nowadays, the youth are inspired around slow fashion and reusing materials and schools are contributing with environmental subjects and projects. Many people have put effort into this for decades, and now it’s exciting and a blessing to be a part of this greater awareness.
Many of Noosa Artisan’s seeds, which we have planted are showing through now. Our shop at the Eumundi Square is stockists of local and interstate artisans who share with us the philosophy of reusing products to hand make them into high quality unique pieces.
This year alone we have taken on several new product ranges. They include upcycled bullet products, textile fabric pieces with a unique twist, a range of products from reused denim jeans and bicycle tyres. We will soon stock our online shop with some of these products and a range of silverware earrings.
We have a
“Make Your Own Spoon Ring” Workshop
happening in the under-covered courtyard at the Eumundi Square Shop on Friday 31st August. This is the first time Lorenzo has held this hands-on workshop outside of festivals, so we are very excited about this. This will be a fun four hour workshop held with Lorenzo in a relaxed environment.
Please follow our Noosa Artisan Facebook page for updates on this. It will be a small group so if you have an expression of interest, you are welcome to contact us and get your name on the list now. You may wish to bring your own treasured silver spoon in and turn it into something special you can wear. There will also be a range of vintage spoons on the day to select from.
We are excited to showcase our work at this year’s QLD Garden Expo at the Nambour Showgrounds on 13th July. The following weekend we take our stock on the road to once again join the Boonah World Environment Day. Lorenzo who creates some amazing pieces from silverware cutlery will be at both events customising to fit and suit your individual style. He has been working on new collections the first half of this year, which will be launched at the Expo. Our shop and stall and the original Eumundi Market will be operating as usual.
