Andrew takes us to the artistic and forest-ensconced community of Nillumbik for this week’s Rockin’ the Suburbs, as Art Smitten explores Melbourne’s suburbs and beyond. He heads to the artistic communites of Monslaavat (Eltham) and Dunmoochin (Cottlesbridge), studio-turned-restaurant Potters (Warrandyte), the Eltham little Threatre, St Andrews market, and Strathewen, chatting along the way to painters Mark Wotherspoon and Lisa Nolan, and potter Judy Trembath.
