Pop Goes the Colour . . .


Jack of Diamonds designs new colour ways inspired by the vibrant new retail pop-up shop Pop Craft...


Since the studio has been finished I have been putting my machines to work to produce some knitwear for the wonderful Pop Craft pop-up shop at Harvest Textiles in Brunswick East. Pop Craft stocks some wonderful local designers who create jewellery, accessories, home wares and garments - behind the eye catching window display you can find crafted pieces by Ilka White, Stella Jones, Melanie Boermans, Kayo Tanaguchi and Anna Varendorff.



The window displays have also become something of a talking point too - the talents of Isabel Knowles and Cat Rabbit (Owl Know How) and the crafted humour of Tai Snaith have been entertaining passers by for the last couple of weeks.

Pop Craft is also running knitting workshops in conjunction with their clever range of knitting kits - you can make a pair of wrist warmers, a beautiful braided scarf or a bag which doubles as a cushion. I have to mention the beautiful range of yarns including pieces from Marta's Yarns, Dairing and Avril. In fact, I found the love of colour a little infectious and couldn't resist adding a little bright to my typically muted garments!




The lovely light space full of colour is the perfect antidote to the winter blues on the grey, grey Melbourne days - so if you knit or would love to learn pop on in to 512 Lygon St Brunswick East between the hours of 11-5.30 from Wednesday to Sunday...
