Miss Haberdash at the Pop Up ....

The Craft Pop Up Shop is open for business at Melbourne Town Hall. On a cloudy Melbourne day step inside and the colours sing.

 An amazing mobile steals the show even office workers taking a quick lunch break stop to look. Made by Dear Plastic (a Sydney duo) the colours and shapes move in the breeze. Dear Plastic have been featured in all my favourite magazines. They've designed shop window displays and conduct workshops where collaborative making is key and sustainability their goal.

A theme also explored by Andy Walker and Gabriela Holland of Pop Plant whose concrete planters are partly made from recycled PET bottles. The work of Emma Davis is also very familiar her woven vessels are made from polypropylene, unique and beautiful. There is so much to love here, as the tag line exclaims independent, Australian and handmade!

The shop is currently open till 11 October 2014. You can't miss the creative yarn bombing outside.
