QV Melbourne pop up Glass House
QV Melbourne has a full calendar of events themed around Springtime, fashion and food !
Last Sunday saw the opening of the QV Melbourne Glass House – a pop up installation of bright green turf, timber planterboxes with tall trees and pergola intertwined with ivy… offsetting a collection of garden tables and chairs (and a nicely-stocked bar in the corner !). The Glass House has a series of functions and workshops planned over the next week or so – and the space itself will evolve as the days go on…
Some of the events are ticketed (at a cost), whilst others are free to anyone who wanders past and pops in to enjoy the experience…. (although they do recommend booking ahead of time). The quirky M Dreams Customisation Workshops will amuse serious shoe-sters, allowing participants to adapt a pair of Melissa shoes (which they get to keep, take home…) with the embellishments of Spring … and Champagne Masterclasses will explore the history and techniques associated with the finest-of-wines… This weekend (Friday to Sunday) the ‘House will be filled with live and colourful butterflies, whilst other offerings throughout the week will indulge the chocoholics among us (cocktails, flowers, recipes with chocolate…) and budding (ohh, a pun !) micro gardeners – with workshops on planting terrariums, herb gardens and modern flower arranging ! Over the12 days, QV retailers will participate in various fashion and beauty events hosted by Phillip Boon, Liz Kelsh, Jason Grech and Carrie Bickmore.
And, in between all this Spring madness… some (relative) respite. Every single afternoon (between 12 and 4pm) the Glass House will be serving a sophisticated High Tea (and cakes !). All very proper, rather fashionable and certainly QV…
