Teacosy Tales at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre

The world — me included — may have gone a little bit potty (tea potty?) for tea cosies of late. First, there was the publication of Prior Loani’s How Tea Cosies Changed the World, which seems to be popping up on book stands and cropping up in magazines wherever I turn. As a beginner knitter, I’m delighted by the idea of switching from lumpy scarves to lumpy cosy projects, and the book gives easy
to follow instructions for a number of knitting ventures.

Now, there’s Bundoora Homestead’s Teacosy Tales — an exhibition, curated by Marg Lanne and Maryanne Noonan, of handcrafted and embroidered tea cosies! All the proceeds from the exhibition are to be donated to the Cancer Council Victoria (if you needed another reason to pop out that way for a gander).

And, if you’re wanting a bit more cosiness, Bundoora’s public lecture series, Talk & Tea, will this month include a chat with Barbara Perret, “who reveals the secrets of successfully creating teacosy masterpieces.” Sounds good to me — Thursday, May 7 at 2.00pm.
