House of Fun

An interesting  building has been given a new lease of life by a friend of mine. The Big House Collective sits in Sturt Street and was a beauty spa, before falling vacant. Sitting back from the street, it looks a bit out of place between the chemist and a real estate agent’s office.

Kelly Davies, with the help of a few friends, has transformed the Big House into a eclectic mix of vintage furniture, books, homewares and clothes (oh, the clothes!).

There are plans afoot for a cafe to be installed, as well as gallery/exhibition space. The last school holidays have also seen felting classes held at the Big House, which have yielded some interesting results. They have also started offering life-drawing classes which should prove to be a hit :).

The Big House is at 614 Sturt Street, Ballarat. Pop in and say hello! They are open from Tuesday – Sunday 10am-5pm.
