Go, go, go!

DESIGN Canberra Festival may have been postponed until 2022 – and the very sweet Nurture Festival held instead – but luckily design lovers will still be able to attend the annual DESIGN Canberra art and design auction this Saturday, November 20 online.

The auction includes 73 items from 56 artists and creators and will be held between 9.00 and 21.00, where the profit goes directly to the creators themselves.

“We have removed our usual commission on sales to ensure that artists get the most out of it. Wherever design lovers are located, they can bid online to purchase experimental, small or disposable pieces from Australian craftsmen and designers,” says Craft ACT CEO , Jodie Cunningham.

With a wide range of auction items – from glass vases to paintings, furniture, jewelry, textiles and home furnishings – there are plenty of things to choose from.
