The Works Glebe

The Works Glebe is an inventive, multipurpose creative space on Glebe Point Road; just a stone’s throw from Broadway and minutes away from the Sydney CBD.

The first floor of The Works is home to a collective retail space brimming to the hilt with an Aladdin’s Cave of vintage, retro and industrial treasures. Here you will find everything from Bill Murray’s regal profile on a cushion to moustache wax, as well as other assorted artworks and oddities.

An inventive, multipurpose creative space The Works Glebe gives creatives not only a place to work but a place to sell their wares

The retail space is comprised of a number of mini-stores that allow different vendors to sell their wares directly to the public in a communal shop front. This is a fantastic idea for up-and-coming creative designers and entrepreneurs as it bridges the often-difficult gap between selling at the local markets or online, to having a shop front of one’s own.

Having different local vendors means that there is an eclectic turnaround of quirky furniture, homewares, décor and fashion on offer. It’s hard not to walk past the window without venturing in for a good sticky beak at the merchandise. Here you will find goodies from NED Industrial, Halchemy Design, Divine Elegance, Australian Home Living as well as quirky picks from The Works.

One floor up on the mezzanine level is another branch of the retail space where a handful of innovative local businesses reside, such as Musicland, Park My Van, Authority Clothing and Swaz.

The third floor is an office space that is currently being refurbished into a creative co-working environment where, for a small fee, a diverse number of businesses or individuals will have the opportunity to rent either a group or private workspace. The shared workspace project is to be entitled; The Works & Co. and will help fellow creative types to get their projects up and running.

As if all of the above isn’t enough to keep the space buzzing, but The Works also run a series of reasonably priced interactive workshops such as ‘Furniture restoration for the lazy person’ and ‘Intro to raw food’.

Closing the divide between customers, dealers, designers and artists, this fusion of creative energy is embracing new and sustainable ways to do business in the local inner-west community and beyond.
