Two for tea

Brrrrr!  Not liking the weather at the mo - so cold!  Makes me just want to bunker down indoors.  There's a few events on where you can do just that.
The annual teacosy exhibition 'Teacosy Tales' starts today in the Access Gallery at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre  and runs until 27 May.  Textile artists, community crafters and teacosy enthusiasts have all come together to celebrate a domestic icon with a vibrant display of handcrafted, beautifully embroidered teacosies with all proceeds donated to Cancer Council Victoria. 

The 'Tea & Secrets in the Heart Garden' feature event at Heide Museum of Modern Art is also being held on Saturday 13 May from 11 am - 1pm.  You're invited to write your own heart-secret to post in Sunday Reid's letter box while sipping chamomile tea in the Heart Garden (in association with Barking Spider Visual Theatre). 
Finally, The Light Factory Gallery offers High Tea at the Tea House - a range of savoury and sweet offerings, including macaroons and truffles, as well as a pot of tea.  High Tea is available from 1 - 3 pm Friday to Sunday.  The Tea House is located behind the gallery with the entrance via the side gate and through the sculpture garden.  Tea House hours: Wednesday - Sunday from 9 am.  Phone: 03) 9431 6823  or email: 

The Bundoora Homestead Art Centre and Heide Museum of Modern Art also have their own cafes if you're wanting to nourish your appetite as well as your soul at these venues.

  1. Really loving hearing about all of the great stuff going on in our area! A bit of High Tea on Mothers Day sounds perfect! I'm a big fan of Heide but really will need to check out the other places.

  2. Yes - we've already booked ourselves in! High tea is pretty reasonable for what you get - think it's $20 per head from memory..we're probably just going to do scones and tea given 5 kids will be in tow : )
