Tea and typography

I've mentioned my love of tea before.  I also have a love of typography.  Hey and guess what?  I can indulge both these loves at the Bundoora Homestead Art Centre this weekend.

The Bundoora Tea Party is on from 2 - 5 pm this Sunday 18 March to celebrate the launch of the centre's annual Teacosy Festival which is held in May.  About Time: Australian Studio Tapestry is currently showing in the main gallery (I love the Sunbather tapestry by Marie Cook below which looks a little Art Deco-inspired) while Typotany: an alphabet of Australian Native Plants is showing in the Access gallery and finishes on Sunday.

While we're on the subject of typography, I also love this book called Characters by Stephen Banham based on some of Melbourne's more famous typography - another one to add to the wish list!

  1. Hello Miss Rosanna! those teacosy's look fantastic! Well worth checking out. Is that homestead in the same grounds as that great toddlers park? what a great place that is! Hope all is well, loving your updates x

    1. Don't they? We would be going except we're triple booked this weekend - maybe we could meet you and Caroline one weekend for a play. Think the homestead is near Bundoora Park and Coopers Settlement which I've also heard is great for kids parties (they have an animal farm as well).

      BTW - there's a new playground about to open in Warringal Park Heidelberg that will be pretty ace - similar to Wombat Bend in Templestowe by the looks of things.
