Farewell, regular old hotel stays. When it comes to choosing somewhere to spend the night, we're now spoiled for choice — think the sharing economy, glamping, and now places with on-site crafting sessions. If you haven't heard of the latter, let the Art Series Hotel group enlighten you at their Etsy x Art Series sessions.
Taking place across Art Series' four Melbourne locations — The Olsen, The Blackman, The Larwill Studio and The Cullen — the collaboration will see Etsy sellers and creatives run how-to classes teaching crafty new skills. Learn calligraphy with Chloe Fleming from Month of June Design, embroidery from full-time hand embroiderer Madi Astolfi, weaving with The Unusual Pear's Rainie Owen and macrame with The Middle Aisle's Maggie May.
Taking place in late June and early July, each session comes with two options: drop on in just to get creative, or pair your learning with an overnight stay. Prices vary, but you'll take something away with you from every class — and, if you decide to treat yo'self, you'll get a sleepover in art-inspired digs as well.
