Craft in Bloom

Craft in Bloom

20% OFF* all Craft & Gardening books in June.

Craft is in bloom this month here at Kinokuniya!

June is our annual Craft Month and this year we’ve got a big one in store for you. In addition to our annual 20% off* sale, we have a full program of workshops, our annual origami challenge, a special guest curated shelf, a gorgeous exhibition in our gallery space AND a free gift with purchase of any craft or gardening book in store, while stocks last.

This Craft Month there is something crafty happening literally every weekend! Bring the kids in to our Make a Carp Kite workshop, or learn how to make beautiful Magnolia Grandiflora or anemone paper flowers with paper flowersmith, Jennifer Tran. We’ve also lined up a workshop with Melbourne maker and artist extraordinaire, Beci Orpin, and a herbal remedy workshop with Reece Carter, a.k.a. The Herb Nerd.


Our annual Craft Month origami challenge is ON, and this year we’re asking you to embark on an origami safari!

Help us fill these paper vines with your jungle origami creations and we and our friends at Tuttle Publishing will collectively donate $1000 to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Head to the Paper Jungle Challenge at the front of our store to get folding!



We are thrilled to have artist, designer, photographer and blogger Ebony Bizys of Hello Sandwich fame curate a bookshelf for us as part of Craft Month! Pop into our Art & Design department in store to check out this hand-picked selection of her favourite photography, art, craft, design and architecture books.



Glorious is the word to describe the exhibition currently on display in our gallery space.

Don’t miss your chance to behold the wonderful paper flower creations by the incredible Jennifer Tran! Exhibition on for the month of June, and her book Flowersmith is available in store now.
