Friday night saw the launch of Tea Green's latest event and we had a great time checking it out. Having been to a number of Tea Green events, we knew the calibre of work would be high and we weren't disappointed. Concept Atelier is a two week pop up shop featuring a whole host of amazing Scottish designers and artists. Alongside a ton of awesome stuff you can buy, there's also a working creative space where visitors can watch the design process in action. And, as if that wasn't enough, there's a display of 2nd & 3rd year DJCAD student sketchbooks and an interactive den building experience thanks to Waste Of Paint Productions. Lots of the designers were there for the launch night, alongside nibbles and drinks provided by The Bach

With all the chatting and plum daiquiris we didn't get a chance to look at all the work properly, so we popped along the next day to have a proper look around. The Old Flour Mill has been all dressed up, mixing its industrial past with a chic designer present. We spent a long time oohing and ahhing over everything, taking some time out to build a Wardrobe Conversations club house out of cardboard. The pop up is open until the 29th  May, 10am - 5pm each day. We thoroughly recommend you get yourself along. If you need any more convincing, here's a look at our top picks: 

Kimberley's Top 3 Tea Green Picks

1.) Yellow Bubble
You know me and anything fluffy. Oh lordy, I fell hard for this crop top! When you try something on and it makes another customer decide to buy it you know it's working. It's a really wonderful collection of knitwear that I've been lusting after over on instagram but to try it on (and have it fit perfectly!) was a whole other matter. Yet another reason to pop down and see all the pieces in the flesh!

2.) PolymorphicsWhite Lab Collective
Who knew I would need tiny wooden mountains in my life? I'm pretty sure I do. These simple but striking geometric tealight holders and plant holders would be perfect in any Pinterest-worthy home and I love them.

3.) Catherine Aitkin
A firm favourite for me. I already own a change purse from Catherine Aitkin but I keep finding myself trying on the backpacks. I just love the classic shape and the herringbone keeps it from looking childish- this is a piece that will last. The contrasting top of this one has pushed it to the very top of my list.


Helen's Top 3 Tea Green Picks
Tea Green Events, Concept Atelier, pop up shop, Dundee, The Old Flour Mill, Tea Green, Scottish design, Scottish designers, Dundee designers, Dundee bloggers, Scottish bloggers, Judy Scott, jewellery design, jewellery collaboration, Judy Scott x Joanne MacFadyen, colourful jewellery
1.) Judy Scott
I love Judy Scott's bright and colourful designs. She makes a whole host of bold items, from cushions, to scarves, to tea towels. They're all fabulous but I am especially loving her new jewellery range. Created as part of a skill share with jeweller Joanne MacFadyen, these pieces were designed especially for Concept Atelier. The painted colours are fabulous, making them tiny works of wearable art. Just my kind of thing.

2.) Joanne MacFadyen
On the flip side of Judy Scott's collaboration are these fabulous scarves. It looks like Judy and Joanne make an excellent team. They've perfectly captured  Jo's jewellery aesthetic to create these screen printed numbers. Plus the colours are gorgeous. There's only a limited number so get in there quick, before I nab them all for my ever growing scarf collection.

 3.) Homebody Makes
I love a good busy pattern but sometimes something simpler can be even more striking. That's what I like about Homebody Make's ceramic pieces. The black and white creates a strong contrast and the added yellow trim adds a nice bit of colour into the mix. As well as cute brooches and pots there's also a whole host of necklaces on offer. Choices, choices!


Joint Pick..... Kerrie Aldo
Tea Green Events, Concept Atelier, pop up shop, Dundee, The Old Flour Mill, Tea Green, Scottish design, Scottish designers, Dundee designers, Dundee bloggers, Scottish bloggers, Kerrie Aldo, Kerrie Aldo jackets, jungle print jackets, jungle print, practical design
We've gushed over Kerrie Aldo quite a bit on this blog but with patterns and shapes like these, can you really blame us?! Her jacket designs perfectly mix the practical with the stylish. Tea Green has a whole rack of them for sale, including some limited pieces. And there's a bunch of make up bags, totes and tshirts to choose from.


So that's our picks from the pop up, but we assure you there's also a whole bunch more. Whether you're looking for a greetings card or a special piece of jewellery, you're sure to find something that fits the bill. We'll certainly be back (probably more than once) over the next couple of weeks. We just wish it was going to be a permanent fixture!
