The simple materials of Paper & Thread inspire creativity for the opening season of Magnolia Squares 2011 event calendar.
Revealing a fresh new look at its first Sydney show in 2011, the boutique shopping event known affectionately to its fans as Magnolia Square is back in town to promote the work of Australia’s favourite artists, independent designers, crafters and makers.
From 25-27 February Sydney’s Paddington Town Hall will be the backdrop for some serious retail therapy and inspiration gathering.
Paper sculptress Jo Neville of the famed Paper Couture studio in Sydney will assume the role of artist in residence, creating a beautiful interior space made entirely from paper.
“Amongst the reams of brown paper, tape and jute string Jo will be on hand to impart some of her papery wisdom with our shoppers; a bit of encouragement for the DIY goddess in us all ” says Magnolia Square founder & director Nic MacIsaac.
Fans of Jo and Paper Couture will be able to watch the progress of the installation captured using time lapse photography and streamed live to the blog at www.magnoliasquare.blogspot.com.
The retailer line up will of course be second to none including artist Nikki Catalano, newly launched botanical skincare makers Myrtle & Moss, jeweller Kirstin Ash and screen printing duo Me & Amber and many many more.
