my heart wanders to melbourne...

I love Melbourne. It's one of those cities I always come away from feeling inspired. I've only been a handful of times in my life, and the last time was at least 5 years ago now, maybe more - however long ago it was, it's been too long. So I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to take My Heart Wanders to Melbourne for a very special book launch event with Magnolia Square on April 3oth. For those who may not know already, Magnolia Square is a curated market place showcasing an amazing group of artisans and designers from around the country.  Each pop up market place has an event styling theme, and this one is 'paper & thread'. I've been invited to style a space within the premises based on this theme, with inspiration from my book:

"Pia Jane Bijkerk will join us from 12 midday on Saturday 30th April where she will create her own lovely space, expressing a little glimpse of her special creativeness and chatting candidly about her work, life on a houseboat and of course, signing copies of her book."

....................................................................................................................................

Exactly.  I am absolutely dying to meet as many creative Melbournites as possible while there - I've admired so many of you from afar over the last few years of being abroad, it's time we meet, don't you agree? Oh, please say yes.

When: 12 midday, Saturday, April 30, 2011 Where: Malvern Town Hall for Magnolia Square What: styling, signing, chatting

 

This is going to be so much fun! Thank you lovely Nic at Magnolia Square for inviting me.
