Here at Lost At E Minor, we love to get involved and help the community whenever we can. That’s why we sponsored this fantastic mural near our Newcastle office by local artist UMPEL. The hypercolour graffiti art was organised by Simone Sheridan, who runs a business focused on beautifying derelict urban spaces whilst reducing graffiti vandalism through creative interventions such as street art.
I heard the impressive girls behind the Newcastle art and fashion label, High Tea with Mrs Woo, talk last night. Man, they are an awesome team. These three sisters have been making beautiful, hand-sewn fashion for the past ten years: a labour of love, inspired by their environment, their love of their craft and materials, and their own unique sense of aesthetic. I walked away from their talk — organised by Renew Newcastle — inspired by the beautiful work they create each day.
