Dave’s Cans in an open air event space on the roof of Myre. It’s having its launch party this Sunday. Looks like the whole of Fremantle is going to be there and the sun will be shining.
We’re so glad to see the return of the Sunset Market tomorrow evening. Bathers Beach is such a wonderful location for this community based market. This year it’s grown and you can head over to J-shed and the Roundhouse for even more food and music. Kidogo remains the central hub with those magnificent views over the indian ocean.
P.S. There will be camel rides along the beach, Broome eat your heart out.
When: Saturday evenings 5-9pm through summer
Where: Bathers Beach, Arthur’s Head Fremantle
Andrew Christie is A Good Looking Man and he teaches people how to work with wood. You could say he makes something out of nothing as he commonly uses old scrap wood that no one wants and he believes anyone who is willing can successfully learn basic wood working skills. I went to a workshop that he ran in Myre Fremantle and I made a stool and now a new piece of furniture adornes my house.
The balmy Friday night was perfect for the opening of FAC’s new exhibitions. It was a relaxed and intimate event. We were especially impressed by Karen Casey’s video installation Dream Zone, which uses the artist’s brain-waves to create wonderful kaleidoscope-like patterns. You can lay on beanbags on the floor and be taken away by the forever changing visuals. It’s just beautiful.
Doing the rounds for just over a month now Lil Tortilla Boi can be spotted at the beaches and parks of Freo. Tasty soft-shell tacos right into your salty-post-swim-hungry-hands. Thank you LTB you’ve brought Mexican food right to the beach, we love you.
Keep track of where Lil Tortilla Boi is going to be next on Facebook.
First of all B-Shed, what a great venue. The sun was setting, the Leeuwin sailed in to dock and a pod of dolphins swam by (really). The evening couldn’t have been more perfect. The shed proved to be an ideal space to host the Fremantle Fashion Collective show. Designers Belle Bijoux, Daniella Caputi, Anna Excell, Little Dove, Luka Rey, Monster Alphabets, Pekho, Sheree Dornan, Tindale, and Wild Horses featured. A ballet dancer opened the show in a flowing Sheree Dornan piece. Belle Bijoux closed the show with models eating La Paleta’s icy poles and one rode a fabulous green tricycle. Read more →
Christian iconography and science fiction fill the heritage-listed Cliff Street Façade.
It’s not often we get freebie invites, so it was very nice of Nescafé to invite us to a private live acoustic session with Jessica Mauboy at Kulcha this week. The acoustic sessions are being run to celebrate 75 years of Nescafé (I had no idea it had been around that long) and most of the people at the gig were competition winners: competitions like the type you see on the top of a jar of coffee. I’ve entered loads of those competitions over the years and never won anything, so it was interesting to see what they’re like. We even got free coffee and Kit Kats… which is never a bad thing.
