Decor by Create & Communicate 2C at Finders Keepers Melbourne
We are really excited about having Paul Bonnici and his team at Create & Communicate 2c to help decorate and bring to life Shed4 for the Melbourne Finders Keepers.
Here is a sneak peek on what you can expect to find..
Inspiration for this large massive space was to create a Spring Garden. Oversized pencil lined daisies will fill the space created out of paper suspended from the shed ceiling. With objects hanging down from the ceiling to balance the activity below at ground level.
Old wine barrels that have been imported from France to house Dominique Portet wine in the Yarra Valley will be used as oversized pots to hold more massive daisies sprouting.
Coloured lights in blue, green and pink tones will wash the walls to put colour back into the old industrial Shed walls.

3things by Oxfam at Finders Keepers Melbourne
3things is a the quirky new movement from Oxfam Australia. Each person can do three small things to contribute to a better world – whether you have 3 minutes, 3 days, 3 months or more. The 3things team will be in Melbourne with The Finders Keepers, asking you to write down or draw ‘One thing I can do to change the world’. Each hour, the 3things stall will host a changing exhibition of the best 3things the crowd came up with. Prepare to chat with the 3things team around the marketplace and at the stall – and prepare to be surprised at what small steps can create big change.
Visit 3things.org.au to get on board with the movement, and to submit your own 3 things.
