Our Artisans


Have you seen our beautiful online magazine yet? Published before every market, it focuses on the designers and producers attending the next market and has stories from around Handmade, along with a full directory of all the stallholders. Using a combination of our own images and the product shots from our clever creatives, it is a wonderful snapshot of what the market has to offer and is available to read HERE.

One of the articles in the magazine focuses on the truly handmade nature of many of the products you’ll find at the market, from food & drink to homewares and accessories. Original recipes are created in testing kitchens, garments are cut and stitched, accessories are created with artisan methods and art comes to life under skilled hands.

Yes, design is definitely flourishing in Australia. And a focus on traditional methods of production allows our designers and foodies to bring you authentic artisan products that have been made with love, style, attention to detail, and no corners cut. Come and see for yourself. Meet the makers at the Handmade Market, 17 & 18 March 2018 at Exhibition Park.
