What a grey & wet day we have in Brisbane today….

I was tempted to curl up on the lounge with my coffee and knitting – instead I decided to brighten things up by adding some colour to my day with our Friday Newsletter!

We just adore receiving the lovely feedback on our newsletter, it makes my week to know that you all enjoy Fridays as much as I do.

Our local BrisStyle crew are hitting the road with their Craft Caravan projects with three events on during June!


Friday 1 June 10am – 4pm
King George Square, Brisbane

Saturday 2 June 11am – 5pm
Zillmere Multicultural Festival

Sunday 3 June 9am – 4pm
Racecourse Road Carnival

Pull up a deck chair, relax and put yourself in caravanning mode…suburban caravanning mode that is! Think two-toned retro caravans, community created bunting, neighbourhood engagement and most importantly hands-on craft and professional development advice delivered by local crafters (along with the odd pink flamingo thrown in for good measure).

The BrisStyle Craft Caravan is set to be a moveable oasis of crafting goodness, which will engage festivalgoer’s in the suburbs and inner city. The onsite retro caravan will evoke feelings of nostalgia as well as providing a fun and interactive backdrop for a friendly neighbourhood craft-up, appealing to all the family, young and old. Just like a craft holiday in your own backyard.

This event is significant because we are taking craft to the people, giving them the opportunity to ask ‘how to’ questions about their own craft.” says BrisStyle Market and Events Coordinator Helen Berthold.

So say hooroo to the crowds and escape on your own crafty retro adventure at the BrisStyle Craft Caravan’s “make and take” suburban oasis. Participants can drop in and craft the day away using holiday crafting skills from their schooldays. In particular, the June 1 King George Square event will come to life with the extra help of community yarn bombing.

Those wanting creative development advice can check in at Dr Craft’s Q&A caravan where local creative’s will be on hand to give advice on all your crafting maladies.

Highlights of the “make and take” workshops:

Caravan colouring-in Oasis: Use your own flair and imagination to colour in a variety of retro suburban caravanning items. All ages and colouring outside the lines welcome!

MYO Caravan Brooch or Magnet: Create your very own piece of wearable or magnetised nostalgia using your choice of crafting medium. Draw, glue or colour-in a cool quirky caravan shape to take away to your own suburban oasis. Ah the serenity!

Community Bunting Project: This project aims to engage and showcase the imagination and crafting talents of the local communities where the festivals are being held in the form of bunting.

If you can’t wait until June to get your BrisStyle fix head into the city this evening!

Friday’s market sees over 100 indie handmade specialists being showcased.

While you’re weaving your way through the stalls make sure you check out the BrisStyle Co-op located in the heart of the markets.

Drop into the King George Square Groove Train for a bite to eat and a cold bevvy or over to the Coffee Hit for a hot toddy. There are also a plethora of great places to eat in the city as well as ATM’s just across the road.

Just perfect to make a night of it!

Inspiring your passion!
