Uncover your creativity this winter with Etsy and Art Series Australia-wide workshop series and creative escapes partnership announced

May 30, 2017 Hotel News No Comments Email Email, the marketplace for unique, vintage and handmade goods, has partnered with Art Series Hotel Group to help uncover Australia’s creativity this winter, with a month of hands-on events in the comfort of the art inspired hotels.

Talented local Etsy makers will host workshops at Art Series’ world-class hotels around the country from 24 June to 9 July.

From the art of weaving in the bold colours of The Cullen (Melbourne) to the intricacies of embroidery in the whimsical surrounds at The Blackman (Melbourne) and the style of typography in the bright lyricism of The Watson (Adelaide), visitors will get the chance to learn new creative skills and connect with talented local makers in the beauty of Art Series’ art-imbued spaces.

Visitors can turn their workshops into a creative weekend escape with Art Series Hotel Group’s special accommodation and workshop packages which include overnight accommodation in art inspired luxury, a $20 Etsy gift card and mini gift bag.

The winter creativity will also take over Art Series Hotels’ foyer spaces throughout June with communal weave installations for guests and visitors to get creative with.

Bookings for the workshops and for creative stay packages at Art Series Hotels around Australia will open on 1 April

Etsy seller and embroidery artist Madi Astolfi (, who will be leading workshops at the The Blackman in Melbourne as part of celebrations, said the workshop series provided the perfect opportunity to learn new skills, connect with people who have the same creative interests, meet influential makers and have fun.

“It’s a chance to kickstart your creativity and come together with like-minded people with a common goal – to create!” Ms Astolfi said.

Etsy Australia Country Manager Paul Hoskins said the winter workshops reflect Etsy and Art Series Hotel Group’s shared passion for art and creativity.

“After the success of the Etsy at The Cullen collaboration in 2015, we’re delighted to be working with Art Series Hotel Group once again to showcase the breadth of talent within Etsy’s creative community in Australia and to give more people the chance to get creative this winter in such beautiful and inherently creative settings,” Hoskins said.

“As avid supporters of emerging talent, working with Etsy and their sellers is the perfect fit for us. We’re excited to work with Etsy again, this time across each of our seven hotels with the creative workshops bringing to life our unique and inspiring spaces,” said Art Series Hotel Group Marketing Manager Beckie Mitchell.
