I had the pleasure of working with Natalie Mendham a few weeks ago and I’m excited to share the images with you. Our aim was to capture the vast colour range and various effects that Nanna Woo has on offer. The focus was on the Homewares Range which has expanded from a single humble bowl, to dishes, platters and vessels all of varying size. Clocks are also in the prototype phase. Things are all go for Homewares right now!

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone for showing their incredible support and love for the METANICAL range over the last year. I am very excited to be expanding this range this year and creating more one of a kind sparkly bespoke gardens for your hands,ears and neck plus some for your home! Each piece has a little story and most have a fragment of nature that we have collected while adventuring with our two glorious kiddies in Bicheno and surrounds! They especially love finding little gum nuts, seed pods and lichen clumps which we harvest thoughtfully… Thank you again! xx

PS: I feel a METANICAL giveaway coming up!

Upcoming Markets

I have been crazy busy preparing some colourful treats for the next 2 markets: the market (Hobart) on July 20th & The Finders Keepers Melbourne just less than a week after that on 25th & 26th July. I’ve added a few new designs to the Painted Patina Range and deepened the colours for winter – don’t worry the bright aquas are still adorning the table! I’ve also been stocking up on my favourite Eco Resin range, madly sanding, buffing, sanding, buffing, losing a few fingerprints along the way…  But amongst all that, getting pretty excited about these markets and I’m looking forward to you popping by and saying hi! See you soon! Hanna x

Their Turn

Today I am writing about two people in love and celebrating their 10 year anniversary next week. They have a gorgeous little boy together. They asked me to make them white gold wedding bands which were going to be exchanged at their surprise wedding ceremony to be followed by a surprise wedding reception.

Except the government said no. No, two women or two men getting married will not be recognised in Australia. I am not going to enter into a political rant. I just want to share with you the feeling I had when I reread Essie’s blog post about the occasion. I felt saddened and a little bit selfish as I recalled the excitement of choosing my wedding dress, the flowers, the cake, the bush reception and seeing the person I will spend the rest of my life with waiting for me to walk to him. And I got to experience this because I am a she and he is a he. *sigh* Nothing will change that feeling and I am so grateful to have felt that.

Essie and SJ will use these rings to celebrate their 10 year anniversary and I was equally honoured to have made my first ever white gold (or any gold) rings for them. I love looking at her blog, there’s much to learn…. Thank you lovelies!

my ocean obsession

For those who follow me on Facebook or Instagram  you would have noticed my recent creations are predominately blue and aqua influenced… I just can’t help but be inspired by the sea at the moment! With the change of season though, I get to fall back into my comfort zone of earthy rich mustard, indigo, green and red. My favourite time of the year is autumn.  Especially in Tasmania!

Next Exhibition

I have 5 months to put together my second exhibition. This time I’ll be travelling across Bass Strait to Melbourne… Very exciting! I have had a billion ideas running through my head for it and I was getting frustrated with how to pull off something complicated and not even sure if I could push myself that much! So I looked around my own backyard in Bicheno and around a very sentimental place to me; Bruny Island. And of course I found plenty to be excited about and it was all very familiar to me!

So, no title as yet but I will be delving into some fun mixed media, with felt as the focus…

Here are some pics from our recent trip to the shack at Dennes Point, Bruny Island

Feeling Fortunate

As far as 2013 goes, I feel so lucky to have had a fantastic year! So many people are supporting independent makers… Here are a few highlights from 2013 for you… From my first Finders Keepers Market in Brisbane to accessorising Jets Swimwear at the Fair Fashion Parade at Fed Square (Moral Fairground) to new stockists… Yup, a great year indeed! How on earth am I going to top it next year? Any ideas???

Oh and for some last minute Christmas shopping, head on over to my Instagram page (@nanwoo) and Facebook page (nanna woo handmade) to pick up a bargain or two!
