Kitch ‘n Art – Janet Galbraith – Castlemaine, Victoria

Posted on July 30, 2012



Janet Galbraith works with recycling quality woollen blankets and vintage fabrics into great products for her well named label, Kitch ‘n Art.  Can anyone think of anything better than a cozy upcycled woolly-blanket-hot-water-bottle-cover in this cold weather?  Janet also makes gorgeous tea cosies, as well as coffee cosies, which cover a plunger!  All of these innovative hand makes use vintage fabrics and materials.  It’s even possible to get decor sets of kitchen items from Janet’s creative range, and she will have a great selection at her trading space, Main Hall at the Winter Art of Elegance Fair.   Kitch ‘n Art product is available through Gathering, details below, and the quality is excellent.  Visit Jane’s creative space at the Fair, and see the work in these pieces of useable art, which incorporates hand stitching, applique work and embroidery.   It’s a very clever concept!  There are many new and vibrant ideas coming from the new wave of hand made culture, not least of all the trend of adding a bit of warmth to the world with yarn bombing.  Watch out for it on your travels and it will bring a smile to your day.  Here is an example outside Lisa’s Gathering, Newstead, which stocks only quality designer products like Janet’s…
