NEXT MARKET: 06 - 08 DEC Add to calendar

New Designers for July


We have a wealth of beautiful designs and produce for you at the next Handmade Market, 28 & 29 July, Exhibition Park, Canberra. We are lucky to have over 40 new stallholders for you to visit, and we can’t wait to share new Australian products with you.

In the category of artwork, Ushi will make a Handmade debut in July. Ushi is the business of French born Canberra local, Marie, who has been drawing for as long as she can remember. With a collection full of simple and colourful drawings, filled with dry wit and puns, Ushi is sure to be a hit at Handmade.

For fresh new skincare, look no further than The Clean Skin Movement. Intent on producing skincare that provides a nutritious diet for your skin, this Sydney brand puts superfoods on its ingredients list instead of chemicals. And the packaging is rather delicious too.

Linen Fish will also be new in July. Gorgeous illustrations by Yolanda el Khouri on beautiful fabrics, homewares and accessories will be on display. Drawing inspiration from music, nature and traditional cultures, this collection of paintings, textiles and ceramics shows an eye for detail and a natural sense of colour.

Outer Island is another exciting new find for the market. Bringing the magic of Australian nature into your home, this collection is a collaboration of Amy and Stephanie, who combine graphic design and art inspired by the natural world and made only of natural or recyclable materials.

Creating metal decor pieces in a variety of designs, Collective/23 crafts its signs from steel before powder coating them for use both inside and outside the home. Based in Wagga Wagga, this new designer will have both off the shelf and bespoke options. Check out the website to see the offerings in advance of the market.

Of course, with so many new designers, we can’t cover them all at once, but have a look at our INSTAGRAM for beautiful images from around the market and check out the NEW DESIGNERS AND PRODUCERS category in our directory to see the full selection of wonderful Australian businesses who are coming to Handmade for the first time.
