Who are


Local Port Adelaide artists/designer makers Andrea Christie &

Jaqueline Barmentloo

Why the name




We have always loved the urban myth surrounding the acronym P.O.S.H.


The story goes that the more well-to-do passengers travelling on P & O ships to and from India used to have POSH written

against their bookings, standing for

'Port Out, Starboard Home'

(indicating the more desirable cabins,

on the shady side of the ship). 

 Now days in our lovely studio that occupies  the former P & O shipping office,

POSH is also an acronym for;

Port Originals Start Here!

POSH Arts & Design is a small Port Adelaide based collective. We acknowledge and respect the Kaurna people who are the traditional custodians on the land which we live and work. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
