We are currently in a bit of a frenzy in the studio, preparing for our first stall at Handmade Canberra on September 7th and 8th. Over the past ten years, Canberra’s award winning Handmade Market has become one of the country’s largest, independent Australian-made markets.
Starting from a tiny gathering of just 35 stall holders at the Albert Hall in 2008, the market now operates quarterly, attracting 270+ stallholders (with a waiting list of 800) and an average of 25,000+ visitors per event. You can see why we’re so excited to be a part of it!
With a passion for supporting independent, small and creative businesses, Handmade Canberra his known nationally as a well-organised, supportive and friendly event, representing the best in Australian handmade design and produce. We are thrilled to be accepted to take part and can’t wait to meet a whole new set of customers.
Along with our usual array of gorgeous minimalist seaglass jewellery, we will also be showcasing two new collections as shown below:
Opulent - which is inspired by the rich, intoxicating colours of the sea surrounding Sydney Harbour and incorporates beautiful colourful gemstones or quartz combined with some of our more rare and exotic seaglass nuggets. With each piece completely unique, this fun, bold collection is designed for those who like to make a statement and aren’t afraid of a little colour.
So if you’re in the Canberra area please come along and say hello! In addition to us, stalls will offer homewares, gifts, fashion, and accessories, plus a gourmet food hall full of street food vans. A heavenly shopping experience!
