Get Basic with Maryanne Moodie

  • 43 Derby Street Collingwood, VIC 3066 43 Derby Street Collingwood, VIC, 3066 Australia (map)

Join us for a casual chat with Maryanne Moodie. Maryanne has attracted a large following across Australia and overseas with her thoughtfully designed and hand-woven wall hangings, as well as her coveted workshops. The Australian-born maker splits time between Brooklyn and Melbourne, and is stopping by 43 Derby Street on her next stint in the latter to share her success story as creative, teacher and entrepreneur.

We'll kick the evening off with a few questions and then open up the discussion, inviting the audience to ask Maryanne questions about her career/life journey. No question is "dumb" at Basic, we encourage the most simple of questions to the most complex. If you'd prefer not to speak on the night, you can submit a questionbeforehand and we'll ask it for you. 

There will be an honesty bar (cash only) selling beers from Sample, wines from Blackhearts & Sparrows and water by Antipodes. 50% of bar profits will be donated to Free to Feed.

Basic will be hosted monthly in the downstairs flexible space at 43 Derby Street in Collingwood. The series of talks intends to bring experts like Maryanne together with a curious audience in a relaxed environment, allowing guests to ask questions and discover what people do, how they do it and what has led to their success.

Jacinta Lippold, founder of 43 Derby Street and JAC&, a design studio specialising in branding, states, “I’ve worked for myself for 10 years, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard peers, clients and other professionals ask about someone else’s career, ‘What do they even do?’ ‘How do they make money from that?’. We want to give people the chance to actually ask the “dumb” questions they’ve always want to ask, and to learn from those who have done really well for themselves. Since Maryanne’s story and career are an inspiration to many, she couldn’t be a more perfect fit for our first talk.”
