Fremantle by Marika Brock

Marika had her previous exhibition at Ootong & Lincoln if you remember. Now her latest work is on display at the Tradewinds Hotel restaurant.

Marika takes the chance to print her work on large scale, allowing the colour and graphic imagery to have its full impact on the viewer. The framed works have been lacquered, adding a brushstroke finish that (along with colour and composition) intentionally leaves the viewer wondering if they are looking at a painting or a photograph.

Crust comes to Fremantle

12 Sep 2014
September 12, 2014

Last year there was a curry craze in Freo, this year we’ve seen a load of new pizza places open up, all of them pretty good. The latest is Crust, which is just out of Freo on South Street. We don’t often write about chain food places (mostly because there aren’t many) but Crust pizzas are something a bit different. We dropped by there just after it opened and tried out a Moroccan lamb pizza (delicious) and a black forest gateau pizza, which is even better than it sounds.

This Little Piggy

It’s Friday, the weekend is here, perfect timing as a new pop-up restaurant is serving up delicious American style bar food in North Freo.

This Little Piggy opened up shop last weekend in the Short Black Sheep, which is a café by day. We got there about 7:30pm last saturday night and we were greeted with big happy hellos and glass of wine and a beer. We scored the last three portions of wings, served with blue cheese (of course) and chipotle sauce. We also put away some delicious soft tacos with pulled pork and halloumi.

Have you heard? The Hidden Sound.

Buy a ticket to a mystery performance and the artist and location are only revealed at the last minute. Many 6160 hosted the first event last night and the lucky 100 ticket holders were treated to music in the basement of the old Myer building. How wonderfully cloak and dagger.

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.
