Rudolf Couture is excited to announce that the lease on brand new premises has been signed today. The new location is even closer to the centre of Launceston, in another of the city’s iconic Art Deco buildings.
Originally built as a newspaper publishing house, the Mercury Building today houses a variety of businesses. The new rooms are located on the first floor, overlooking St. John Street and Tatler Parade.
It will take some time to prepare the rooms for moving in, so operations will be maintained at Holyman House until further notice.
The new address will be:
1/68 St John Street
Launceston Tas 7250
All other contact details will remain the same. Click on the map to go to Google Maps.
Rudolf invited to join judging panel at wool event
Rudolf has been approached by the organisers of the biannual Bothwell SpinIn, asking him to join the judging panel for the design competition. The festival, centered around wool and all things that can be made out of it, is now in its 38th year. Run entirely by volunteers on a shoestring budget, the event aims to showcase creative Tasmanian textile artists and designers to an international audience.
The SpinIn will be held at Bothwell in Southern Tasmania on 03 & 04 March 2017.
Figure Drawing from Life at Holyman House
In collaboration with the (in)famous Lena Lindblad, Rudolf Couture is bringing a brand new concept for a creative ‘jam session’ to town. ‘Nudie Ruedi’ is what Lena suggested we call it and yes, it is a work in progress…
Enjoy a two hour session drawing the human form from a live model, surrounded by the elegant art deco features of Holyman House. Constructed in 1936 in the streamline moderne style, it is a true architectural gem in downtown Launceston.
The cost is $20 per person for those who can afford it, or by donation for those who cannot. Space is limited to 8 participants and there are model fees to cover, which is why bookings are essential. You can reserve your place by email or by calling Rudolf on 0402 228 571 . For all the latest news, visit and like our Facebook page by clicking here.
Starting 18 January 2017, the event will be held every Wednesday evening from 6-8pm at Holyman House, Suite 44/52 Brisbane Street, Launceston. You will need to bring your own preferred media, avoiding any messy or smelly things.
Rudolf featured on local TV news in connection with Miss Universe Australia 2016.
