Brickmaking in Manjimup

from The Blue Carpet Collective Easter Studio #1 (29-30th March 2013)

Intent: to create a studio type environment, which allows time and space for creative work – loosely based around the ideas of extra-curricular architecture, collaboration, and personal creative practice in balance with career activity.

Place: Graphite Road, Manimup, Western Australia. The house is old, fairly run down and not often lived in. It has hot water, electricity and a wood-fire in the kitchen. Little/no mobile reception. No internet. No landline.
