The Full Drop Co. has been with us at Harvest Workroom for the past couple of weeks as our February artists-in-residence. We have been really looking forward to this residency as these guys are fresh out of university having all graduated in the class of 2012 RMIT BA Textiles Design and we knew they would use the time in our studio to create some fresh and colourful work.
There are 6 members of the Full Drop Co and 3 members have played an active part in the day-to-day workings of the residency - Ella Schwartz, Yolanda Zarins and Sophie Curtain.
Each of them has focused on their own work but have also come together to produce a limited edition run of handprinted cork mats and coasters for a public opening party this Thursday evening 21st February. They have also hung a fantastic hanging cork installation using macrame knots in the Harvest window.
The full collective will produce some limited edition cards for sale at Harvest Storeroom which will be ready for the public eye this Thursday.
If you can't make it never fear - Full Drop Co. will be open for an open studio from 10am - 4pm this Saturday and Sunday (23 & 24 February).
Come and support this fresh new talent.
