Studio visit: The Gently Unfurling Sneak

This week, CLOG is proud to present a studio visit to someone very dear to us. Say hello to Anika Cook: the lady behind the label The Gently Unfurling Sneak, Craft Victoria's web designer, SHOP stockist and above all, our BUDDY!

Anika is currently our Maker of the Month (click here to view her installation in our street-level window) and you can check out her work in person both in person and through our online shop. Initially launching The Gently Unfurling Sneak as 'Sneak Design' in 2006, Anika's label has since grown to include a variety of covetable products like brooches, hairpins, prints, clothing and coming to you in 2012, an exclusive line of whitegoods. Just kidding!

Working from her airy and spacious studio at River Studios in West Melbourne, Anika busies herself with the many elements involved in running a label: production, packaging, testing, posting, updating... the list goes on! So without further ado, we hope you enjoy this week's peek into Anika's workspace.

On a separate note, today is also Anika's last day as Craft Victoria's web guru. While it's sad for us, we're happy for Anika who will now be devoting more energy into her label. Hooray!
