About Us

Artocracy is a shared retail space where everything in store is made in Melbourne and surrounds. By sharing the costs and operation of the shop, our artists and makers are able to showcase their work, while still retaining the freedom to continue to create those magical products that you can’t find anywhere else. Each time you visit you will meet at least one of the makers and you’ll have the opportunity to learn about the products from the makers themselves.
