Welcome! And thank you so much for taking the time to visit us online.
Hope & Co. had its first beginnings as a ‘bricks and mortar’ homewares store and art gallery in Western Victoria in 2011.
In 2014 my husband and I decided on a lifestyle change and moved to Queensland. During our hiatus to sunnier climes, I studied and fell in love with pottery, began honing my new craft and wrote a novel, C A N V A S. So time was not wasted…
But one thing led to another, and we moved home. Family and friends—our tribe and community—became more important at a certain junction in our lives than we’d anticipated and I missed Hope & Co.
I realised, however, a traditional retail space was no longer for me. Not only is retail in a regional town challenging, it tied me down—and anyone who knows me well, knows I love to travel!
After returning from nearly two months in the UK earlier this year, I came home to re-launch Hope & Co. with a new perspective and fresh approach. We’d focus on our own artwork, hand-crafted small batch ceramics, prints, and a limited selection of selected homewares, which could flesh out the Hope & Co. style and story.
We plan to offer the Hope & Co. range primarily online and at selected market events. A larger studio space is also in the pipeline in Hamilton. We’ll keep you in touch with things as we progress, but we’re hoping to have this space launched by Christmas 2019.
I have also been blessed with two very creative daughters, Georgie Morrison and Skye Morrison, who now join me on this next phase of Hope & Co.’s journey as artists in the Hope & Co. range.
I look forward to bringing you so much more in the coming months! Don’t forget to subscribe and connect with us on social media, so we can keep you up to date.
