Hello Makers and Mothers of Makers…
This week is busy at Our Little Caravan. On Thursday we are excited to be holding our first ever terrarium workshop. Jem from Source Koncepts will be your teacher and all participants will go home with a finished terrarium. There are limited spaces still available. Make a booking with Anne: firstname.lastname@example.org
On Friday night, 25th November we have our Twilight Market! 6pm-9pm. The makers and friends of Our Little Caravan are coming together and at this special event there will be plenty of handmade crafts and gifts to choose from. Inchmeal Café will be open late for the event.
On Thursday 8th December we are hosting a Bloggers Meet Up event. Beginning at 7:30pm, this is an event that is open to anyone who writes a blog. If you know a Melbourne based blogger that may be interested in attending this evening – please share this blog post with details about how to book.
We are open late on Thursdays until Christmas. A perfect opportunity to shop for gifts and enjoy a coffee at Inchmeal Café. It’s guaranteed to be a lot easier to get a car park than any nearby shopping centre!
On these Thursday afternoons, and also Saturday mornings (10:30am-12:30pm) leading up to Christmas, kids can “Drop In and Craft”. You can choose from a variety of gift ideas, and we will have the supplies you need to create the perfect gift for a family member, friend or a teacher. Including our 3 most popular crafts: glass tiled pendants, polymer clay, and scrabble tile frames. Prices begin at $15 Add on afternoon tea for a further $5 per child.
Over the past 18 months, My Little Caravan has grown from a backyard birthday party hobby business to a thriving social enterprise. Little did I know when I brought Mabel the caravan to the back of an old shop in Notting Hill, that the collective in itself would become a community. A grouping of makers and crafters that have a safe space to sell and exhibit their wares in a beautiful shop space and create a point of interaction with their customers. This year we have also been able to use the shop space to host craft workshops, live music events, and book launches, and we continue to collaborate with the Notting Hill Neighbourhood House to run craft markets and other community events.
Thank you for your continued support as you spread the word about OLC and regularly visit Inchmeal Cafe to drink the best coffee in Notting Hill.
