A Timeless Tea Party at the Curious Oyster Shoppe - By Betty Jo!

The Timeless Tea Party

The Timeless Tea Party
Craft Cubed satellite event
5 – 26 August 2010
The Curious Oyster Shoppe
Presented by Betty Jo Designs

A curious mixture of memories, fantasy and imagination.
A time of play, adventure, and make believe.
Books and stories regularly provided inspiration for my childhood games.
Enid Blyton, Lewis Carol, the Brothers Grimm.
Well loved and well read, often many times over.

Organising tea parties with playmates are some of my fondest childhood memories. In the confines of the cubbyhouse with wonky second-hand furniture, various mismatched cups and saucers, and cupcakes usually made from play-doh, but sometimes real. And of course the teapot, full of some weird concoction, never tea!

Now lets pick up the tea party where we left off and come and join the 'The Timeless Tea Party'. An installation of tea party inspired time pieces and jewellery.

Take a pinch of Alice in Wonderland, a dash of The Magic Faraway Tree and mix it up with some Mary Poppins and you have “The Timeless Tea Party”

Like the nonsensical tea party from Alice in Wonderland which will always be timeless literally and figuratively, this tea party will be based around time.
Oversized tea cups will be functional clocks.
Plates of linoleum cupcakes will tempt you.
The Teapot will tell the time, as will the lamp and the phone………

Betty Jo is having a tea party and you’re invited…..
