ABOUT HOOPOE HOME 

Hoopoe Home was borne from my desire to share my love of colour and design.

My designs are edgy and vibrant and aim to make a statement. Most pieces are limited edition and small batch, with limited runs of each design so that each piece is exclusive and carries with it my very heart and soul.

I design and hand craft bespoke wearables using textiles and embellishments that I source from small suppliers across the globe.

My collection unveils a vision for colour and texture that strongly imbues the unique light and casual energy of Brisbane, fused with the aesthetics of luxe tribal and mid-century style.

hoo-poe [hoo-poo] – an old word bird found in Africa.[home] – where my heart is; the instinct to return, to go to one’s home place.

It was great to get the all round basics for polymer Clay - best products.. access to them.. different handling techniques..finishing techniques and finally... putting it together. I enjoyed experimenting in a group situation as we all had different approaches.. In all a very relaxing session! My 7 and 5 year old grand daughters and 4 year old grandson (!) have also had fun since.. Cheers, Jan Connor
