Follow the White Rabbit : Our Final Window

The Mad Hatter’s tea party is about to start, and what a colourful mess has been made! Our window features 298 teacups lovingly made by volunteers from our local community, and don’t they look stunning!

We have an assortment of handcrafted teacups with ribbons, drawings, paint splatters and paper collages of all shapes and colours. Look in our window and you’ll also see beautiful paper flowers, mini toadstools, a bright pink flamingo, vertical hanging gardens, a quirky blue teapot and the famous white rabbit with his gold pocket watch – bringing all the elements together to create the magical Alice inspired display
for our final window installation!

“… Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit
with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity,
she ran across the field after it,
and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down
a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.”

- Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll -
