Mashu



Homemade food, art, music and more. For home made people buying, trading and selling in homes and other spaces that definitely aren't shops, offices or zoos. The workshop is dead!


The art is in the tea



Arts collective mixing the occult with the the everyday to create interactive situations and interventions into public and gallery spaces.
