Media release

Stockland Merrylands has kicked off its two-week-long House of Kicks experience in-centre, running until 16 May 2021.

Michelle Thomas, Centre Manager at Stockland Merrylands, said that House of Kicks will offer customers a chance to participate in a range of street art and fashion inspired workshops and events.

“We’ve partnered with local artists to curate some exciting urban art experiences, ‘Instagrammable’ photo opportunities and prize draws for our customers.*

“We want to offer more than traditional convenience and variety, and curate more interactive and engaging activations for customers that are exclusive to the centre and community.

“House of Kicks is a great demonstration of this vision, and we hope that customers will take full advantage of this fun entertainment offer while it’s here.”

Local Parramatta sneaker customisation experts, Khameleon Kickz, will offer customers inspiration from their range of stencils, designs and paints in a 1-hour workshop. Included in the $5 ticket price are supplies to style 2D sneaker renders, or customers can bring along their own kicks. Bookings are required in advance.**

Sydney-based artist, designer and fashionista, Bianca Beers, will also be hosting free interactive 1-hour sessions on styling inspiration, tips and where to get the look in-centre.

Bianca has also designed an exclusive 1-hour street art workshop using her favourite mediums and styles. Included in the $5 ticket price, customers will be provided supplies to design their own graffiti art backpacks to take home. Bookings are required in advance.**

The nail art station will show customers how to customise their nails with sneaker-inspired DIY nail wraps, and take home a complimentary kit to try later.

House of Kicks will be located opposite Footlocker in the centre.
