    Design Free Thursday // Silke Baltruschat’s Handicrafts.

    19th September

    FORM presents Midland Atelier 2008-2013 // Perth, Western Australia.

    8th July

    Located in the heart of the historic Midland Railway Workshops in Perth, Midland Atelier is Western Australia’s first hub for creativity – a home to Australian and international designers working across a range of mediums from photography to furniture design. Built to manufacture and repair locomotives, rolling stock, bridges, track equipment and everything else required to maintain the state’s rail transport system, the Workshops were the largest industrial complex in Western Australia’s history. The site today is an icon of Perth’s Eastern fringe, with Midland Atelier facilitating a renaissance of the Workshop’s former identity as a centre for the manufacture of bespoke and hand-crafted production…
