After treating us to some seriously awesome screen printing know how for #TDKtuesdays, our BFF’s at The Neighbourhood Studio are back with a design market featuring all of their crafty, talented mates. DINZ is making the trip down to Welly for the Best of the Best Designers Talk series, Allbirds and Alt Group are not to be missed. Get out of the house to witness Lux Light Festival take over the waterfront. If it’s too cold, maybe catch something at the Architecture and Design Film Festival. And finally, a MASSIVE highlight of the Wellington calendar, Start Up Weekend is back, peep some of the warm up talks before jumping in. Keep an eye out for deets on the socials for our next #TDKtuesdays, the hype is real!
