Your VIP access to Melbourne’s top design studios
A piece by Melbourne based illustrator Jess Johnson.
Meet the Maker studio tours from RMIT Link Arts & Culture are your chance to peek into your favorite artist’s studio and get an insight into their creative process.
Experience a personal tour of some of the most innovative creative studios in Melbourne – from visual arts, to textile, craft, fashion and graphic design.
New Zealand born, Melbourne based illustrator Jess Johnson’s will be the first studio in the program.
Johnson’s drawing and installation practice is inspired by science fiction, cosmology and shifting notions of reality.
Her recent activities include founding Hell Gallery, which ran from her home during 2008–2011. In 2010, Hell Gallery was invited to London to participate in No Soul For Sale – A Festival of Independents at the Tate Modern.
Iconic stationery line Able and Game, who are known for their use of humorous and real messages, will also feature in the line-up. Their studio is located in an old classroom where they design and print their cards – giving their workspace a mixed atmosphere of industrial and creative.
Other additions in the program include The Lyon Housemuseum, fashion labels Monolog, and Article, and artists Kitiya Palaskas and Claire Best.
The tours will run throughout semester, featuring a different studio each week. Tours are free for RMIT students, but you must book and places are limited.
