These will be unique makers markets
The Australian Design Centre is a leading arts organisation who do exclusive designs and contemporary crafts, exhibitions, events and Object Shop.

The Australian Design Centre's boutique outdoor Makers Market will now return for the first time in 2019 and this will be part of the Sydney Design Festival. The Sydney Design Festival will this year have the theme of Accessing Design.

The markets will be in Darlinghurst and be a friendly local street market that starts in the morning and goes until night time, when the streets will be taken over again by the local people.

It will be next to the major touring exhibition 'Steel: Art Design Architecture' which is from Adelaide's JamFactory. The Makers Market will feature no less than 20 local Sydney artists who have been selected for their exceptional work.

There will be handmade, designed and collectable pieces and these will include textiles, jewellery, ceramics and homewares and they will all be for sale by the makers.

This market will be on Saturday 9th March, from 10.00 am till 4.00 pm. It will take place at the Australian Design Centre, corner William and Palmer Street, Darlinghurst. Entry is FREE.

Some of the makers displaying their wares will include the following:

Afternoons With Albert - these people describe themselves as "doers, thinkers and adventure seekers". They also believe that their products should fit your lifestyle and not the other way around.

Clay Canoe - they make bowls, platters, ceramic spoons, dishes, and tumblers out of various materials.

Eggpicnic - have unique fine art prints that save species. Eggpicnic is a Sydney based illustration and design studio who are devoted to wildlife conservation. They produce their fine art prints and toys to end wildlife extinction through education. Their work has been chosen by the City of Sydney as part of their new Creative City Sydney program to change the cityscape.

Home by Harlequin - is run by Lauren and after a 15 year career, Lauren followed her dream and created Home by Harlequin.

Kate Sale Jewellery - Kate began making jewellery when she was a child. This then turned into her passion so in 2014, Kate quit her job and made jewellery making her main focus. Kate makes colourful jewellery that is made from semi-precious materials. She makes a lot of pieces using recycled sterling silver and copper.
