The Skillsmithery at Many 6160

23 Jul 2014
July 23, 2014

We love how Many 6160 is so much more than just a shop. The place has a creative feel about it, and it’s the perfect place for the Skillsmithery by Studio Bomba. On Sunday we went to Many to attend a Japanese Bookbinding workshop. Guided by no one less than the president of the WA Craft Bookbinders Guild Jo Shoobert, we learned everything about noble, hemp-leaf and tortoise shell style binding.

Lenny the OX

From the people that bought you Ootong & Lincoln comes another great cafe with an unusual name. In the space that used to be occupied by Gourmet on Wray, the Ootong team have wheeled their great blend of coffee up South Terrace and marginally closer to where I work… which will be handy on the rainy days. Everything is made fresh from scratch either here or in the bigger kitchen up the road, which means great salads, sandwiches, cakes and all the rest that you’ve come to expect.

Street artists Alex LehoursYok & Sheryo will be collaborating on a massive mural on 1-5 South Terrace (Market Street). The event is sponsored by Converse hence the sneaker reference and corporate branding. People are invited to make suggestions to the artists about what to paint using the hashtag #sneakersclashfreo via Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. You can do this with photos or video or just plain old words. The artists will chose the best submissions to interpret into the mural art work.

Box Pizza

30 Apr 2014
April 30, 2014

Last thing Fremantle needs is another pizza place. Wrong. Box Pizza is probably the best pizza I’ve had outside Italy. It’s really good. I wanted to order another one when I finished eating the first one, but that’s just greedy.

It’s relatively new and it’s set up shop where the Sardine Café (RIP) used to be. It’s back to basics and the hand-made vibe runs though the whole place with pallet furniture and re-purposed wine bottles as drinking glasses. You can eat in as they’ve set up some seating outside. Pictured is the parma ham and fig, delicious. Excuse my amateur food photography.

Learn Stuff About Beer

11 Apr 2014
April 11, 2014

Want to learn a thing or two about beer? Then beer school is for you.

You can expect to smell some hops, touch some malt and taste some beers. You’ll be shown how beer is made and get to ask lots of questions. When I attended there were two brewers on hand and they were perfectly happy to answer basic questions as well as technical ones. We sampled the Little Creatures range as well as some craft beers from Alaska, New Zealand and Germany so you can completely geek out on hops.

You know her sister’s famous zebras on the wall of Ootong and Lincoln and now on the inside walls you can view and buy Marika Brock’s colourful and creative Fremantle photography.

The colour and creativity of Fremantle, in its historical buildings, the geometric shapes of the port, its containers and cranes and the passion of a Fremantle tribe, whether for their football or support of local art spaces inspires Marika’s latest collection of photography.
