As our floral show 'Bloom' enters it's second week, we're enjoying the wonderful plant-themed sculptures in the gallery. Reece Halvorsen has created trees from stainless steel with beautiful iridescent finishes which reflect onto the walls with a magical sunset glow. For her cherry blossoms, Brenda Isaak Takao @blueseedgirl has used one of the toughest materials to create one of the most delicate of blooms, channelling spring with mild steel. Her stunning fantasy flowers bring a touch of the exotic to the gallery. 'The Climb' by Marj Harding @mavenmetalart features an upcycled iron water pump and forged ivy leaves which feel ready to move in the breeze. Her other works include a floral bouquet, full of colour and texture. The vibrant stoneware of Marcelle Glock @madmudslinger is full of intriguing and whimsical details which will keep you looking. Bloom runs until March 31, and Coast Collective is open 11-5 Wednesday- Sunday.

The classroom turned into an elegant, whimsical wonderland today for Katheryn Fudge's Standing Paverpol Figure workshop. Her students' smiles say it all as they use Paverpol to transform beautifully textured fabrics into strong sculptures which are tough enough to handle life outdoors. Under Katheryn's expert guidance, each student created their own unique piece of art, incorporating details including funky boots, glamorous turbans, cascading locks of hair or butterfly wings. In their new homes, they'll grace patios, balconys and flowerbeds in time to welcome spring. Katheryn's Seated Paverpol Figure class is the perfect introduction to this wonderful art form- the next class runs on 28-29 March, and you can sign up through the link in our bio or by calling Coast Collective. It's the perfect spring course for anyone who loves art and the outdoors!

#repost @bodavictoria • • • • • Just something that’s been niggling at me lately... Support your favourite local businesses! You’ve probably seen the notices lately, with more and more frequency, that a lot of the big brand stores that we all know and take for granted are closing their doors. Those stores have the potential for much bigger sales margins, reach and buying power and yet...not surviving. Now picture your favourite independent retailer/small business person/group. They can’t compete against the big stores for advertising dollars, margins or visibility. But they CAN compete with love, customer service, a big heart and personally curated goods. The insider truth is that no matter how glamorous anyone makes it look, solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, independent businesses are working their butts off to give you the best possible product and service - with heart... and it’s not easy. Seriously peeps...if you have a favourite local business, show them some

Good morning and happy Sunday, friends! . . I love a good play on words, and I think this one suits the day perfectly.

If you missed out, you can still view this beautiful and varied exhibition until 10 March- though the delicious cookies and dips have gone forever!
