Upholstery Window Display

Hi, have you checked out our upholstery demonstration window display at the Green Living Centre on 218 King St, Newtown?

The Bower regularly runs upholstery demonstrations as part of our efforts to promote reuse/repair and keep items out of landfill.

We hosted a free upholstery workshop at the Addison Road Community Centre on July 8 and it was a great success with 45 people in attendance.

Keep an eye on our blog and facebook.com/Thebowercoop for future upholstery events.

Role up Role up - Come see the show

Hi again Bower folks.

This might be the last time I post here.  My six month residency as The Bower resident artist has just about come to a close.  So come along to the grand opening of Eclectic Electric, where I'll be showing off some of the results of my time here.

For ten days the Workshop Showroom in St Peters will be transformed into a cabinet of curiosities. A mysterious velvet-lined box to contain my electrical oddities.  Some come along and check it out. 

Opening night is Thursday 19th July at 7pm.  There'll be the usual vino and crackers, and I might even wear a clean shirt for the occasion.  You'll find the Workshop Showroom here: http://goo.gl/maps/IgPd

If you can't make it on the 19th, come along any day until the 29th from 11am till 4pm and you can have the show all to yourself (probably).

I'd like to say thanks to all the people who've come to say hi to me while I've been working out the back.  It's encouraging to have people curious about what you do, and everyone has been very encouraging. 

I expect I'll still be a Bower regular, but if I don't see you all again, then thank you, and goodbye.
