The Maxart Button Factory, one of Australia’s major makers and dyers of buttons, closed its doors in the late 1900s leaving behind a long history of manufacturing in Cheltenham. The building remained empty for well over twenty years, with only a heap of pigeons (and a heap of pigeon poo) occupying the upstairs area amongst the dangling electrical wiring for most of that time. In December 2017 Phil took over the factory with a vision to turn the old disused factory into an art space for the community.
So. What will it be? Celebrating your engagement in the Garden Space surrounded by the luscious greenery? An intimate dinner for a birthday celebration in Ross Gallery, with the surrounding walls displaying creative works by a current artist? Or The Maxart Space, flooded with natural light from the surrounding windows, ideal for a designer wedding or photoshoot.
