A new space to sell art, wares and screen films

A NEW space has opened in Brunswick Heads for local artisans to sell their wares, and budding filmmakers to screen their creations.

Located at 15 Tweed Street where Brunswick Paint Pot used to be, Sweet Pea Lane is a café-come-treasure trove of bespoke hats, jewellery, stationery and gifts handcrafted by seven local artists.

"The idea was to create an outlet where artists could affordably sell their work and I could showcase the incredible pool of talent in and around Bruns," Sarah Irving said. "We will also offer a printing service for local business, which will enable artists to print their work on hats, bags, cups, books, cards and canvas."

The SAE Institute trained filmmaker is in the process of creating an area where people can enjoy locally made movies on a projector along with their handmade tea and healthy cake.

"I wanted to give SAE students and up-and-coming filmmakers the chance to share their work with the public," Sarah said.

Sweet Pea Lane is open from 7am to 5:30pm seven days a week.
