  1. Hello,

    I will be coming along on Saturday but I have a question. Will you at some stage be offering workshops on silversmithing?

    • Shane,
      We are so glad to hear you will be attending our official launch on Saturday.
      With regards to silversmithing, if there is enough call to do a workshop and we can get someone to run a workshop, then for sure it would be something we would do.

  2. Hi,

  4. I have a lot of sticks from the big red gum trees.
    In the street near the side gate at 50 greene St.,

    I left 2 black desk chairs at the front door for table use.

    The shire meetings at Community college should be good to attend.

    I saw Box Hill Community Art centre yesterday and collected a book on their user groups. It is possibly easier to maintain than ours..

  5. Have a lovely day…Bastion Point was passed today so the beach or bay will be completely different after 25 years of protest..recreational boatingomey will probably be available or already allocated.

    Is this the best use of resources for recreational boating improvements for all of East Gippsland.
    Expected to cost $6 million.

  6. Hi there, I am part of a new Facebook page for East Gippsland called ‘WHAT’S ON IN EAST GIPPSLAND’ where anyone is welcome to post events and happenings etc for the East Gippsland Area. We’re extending out the invite to all venues, individuals, groups, etc in the area to use our page as a platform for promoting events etc. I hope to see you there! our link is:

  7. Hi,
    I spoke to Jewels at the Nicho winery on Saturday about the Maker Space and possible funding ideas. Here are some options: However the SpAusnet grant I was thinking of has now closed, but there are other ones here. You could ring and speak to Ruth Fitzclarence for ideas…she’s the grants officer and is very lovely and will give you ideas.

    Be aware also the Council has a discretionary budget, so feel free to write a letter to the mayor or Councillors. See
    Also there is an Arts advisory board.
    I’m the sustainability officer (part-time 2 days) and love your idea, but have limited time to be involved. The other idea I had was linking in with the Tip Shop?? Getting some of their items and fixing them up. I know of a great project in the latrobe valley, where they got old and dumped bikes from the tip, and did them up with disenfranchised youth, who then got to keep the bikes! Was a great success I gather. Anyway, I’d like to help where I can and will keep my eyes open for more grant/funding options.

    Kind regards

  12. Hi,

    I am currently working in the Makerspace in Oslo and was looking up a similar kind of arrangement for when I head back to Australia. Although I won’t be based in QLD, I just thought I would say well done for organising this and good luck. These spaces are awesome!!!

    All the best,
