To welcome Melbourne back this festive season, we present Look.Stop.Shop. 2021 for a Merry Flinders Quarter Christmas supported by the Metro Tunnel Project.
This business support program features a range of artwork and performances from iconic duo The Huxleys, a collection of specially commissioned window installations by Australian craft-based designer Kitiya Palaskas, Campbell Arcade trees and lighting, giant Christmas selfie postcards, and instant scan-and-shop offers.
Presenting 'You're Welcome' – a collection of 15 giant sculptural paper wreaths by Australian craft-based designer Kitiya Palaskas.
Made by hand, and inspired by native botanicals with pops of personality unique to each business, the wreaths are an open invitation, a welcome back to our city, and a celebration of Flinders Quarter's enduring small business community.
Kitiya Palaskas is an Australian craft-based designer and author with a multi-disciplinary practice. She specialises in prop and installation design, content creation, illustration, and creative workshop facilitation, focusing on using handmade techniques and traditional craft methods re-imagined in contemporary ways.
Her work is characterised by its bold colours and playful themes and has spanned the retail, music, advertising and publishing industries, as well as being the author of Piñata Party, a craft book published by Hardie Grant that is available in Australia, the UK and the USA.
