A Very Surry Hills Christmas

A Very Surry Hills Christmas was a bespoke Christmas event produced by the City of Sydney. The event featured workshops showing you how to make your own personalised Christmas decorations – featuring McCann’s familiar “eye” design – to hang on your tree and decorate the house. Artist Jeff McCann also designed an exclusive Surry Hills Christmas paper that was available for complimentary gift wrapping of purchases made in the Surry Hills village on the day. Shoppers took take part in workshops to make their own Christmas wreaths, DIY-screen printed coasters, and personalised edible gingerbread gifts.
