Wabi-sabi. Finding beauty in imperfection, asymmetry and simplicity.
The year’s second Kinfolk gathering centred around this concept and invited us to leave our phones and pretentions at the door to enjoy “a messy meal” in each other’s company. Some gathered round the table and others on the floor, the finest food was savoured and the conversation naturally ebbed and flowed, most notably “ebbing” when those divinely succulent lamb cutlets arrived. They demanded our full attentions.
Other notable mentions. The revelrous texture of our ceramic bowls, deliciously rough to the touch. The winsome greenery strung from the rafters to transport us someplace magical. Candles burnt down to their stumps, a night well spent.

Put plain and simply, Saturday night’s Kinfolk gathering was holistically perfect. Not a single piece was out of place, all expertly and lovingly orchestrated by the inimitably talented Stacey Clark. Hosted in Kidogo Arthouse in Fremantle, the food and wine and conversation flowed freely and effortlessly. What an amazing night – a room full of inspiringly creative people, all so happy to be together, many for the first time. The joy and optimism was tangible.
This is a sign of great and wonderful things to come in Perth and wider Australia.
A massive high five to all who contributed. What an extraordinary bunch of people you are.
To Stacey. You encourage us with your talent and tenacity and make us all want to push our creative boundaries.
