October is the month for Victoria's largest celebration of craft and design, Craft Contemporary.
Presented by Craft and Victorian artists, makers and designers, there are over 150 events to experience throughout October including exhibitions, talks, workshops, open studios and more. In its final week, there is still time to explore with many events free.
Following are some of my picks.
