Hotham Street Ladies: A Book For Kids


Ships in 2-3 weeks

Hotham Street Ladies: A Book for Kids takes its inspiration from Australian domestic traditions, home life and baking for friends and family. This is an exciting book for children aged 5 years and above and is produced in close collaboration with the Hotham Street Ladies (HSL), a group of five women who make food-related art, including cake sculptures, recipe books and street art. Each of the ladies has lived at one time in a crooked share house in Hotham Street, Collingwood. Richly illustrated with images of works of art and photography, each chapter focuses on an aspect of the HSL’s practice and concludes with original activities for young readers to try out at home, or at school with family and friends. Make ‘street art’ using icing sugar and piped icing, create a kitchen garden using old pots and containers, or realise your very own cake of doom and gloom! Hotham Street Ladies: A Book for Kids captures the creative spirit of the artists’ share-house in Collingwood, and indeed Melbourne as a whole, through lively, humorous text and striking imagery. Young readers are invited to reinvent some of the more familiar domestic rituals – this book presents a chance to bend the rules, play with food and get creative!" Thames and Hudson
