Fancy buying some products uniquely handmade in Australia directly from the designers? If so, then head on to the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability this 28th April (Sunday) where the Artisans Market will be held for the first time.
The market will feature the work of forty five local artisans, including art, ceramics, jewellery, paper making, basketry, clothing, textiles and of course, food. All stalls will be indoor, inside the historic buildings and will proceed regardless of whether it is rain or shine.
This initiative aims to provide local artisans with an opportunity to showcase their work and sell them to the people. There is something for everyone with a variety of creatively hand crafted products.
Genia McCaffery, the former North Sydney mayor, is among the many artisans participating in the event. McCaffery will showcase her creation, called Fabric and Frocks, turning her hand-printed silk into dresses and skirts. Other participating artists include Jenny Lawday, Ciska White, Missémoo, Robyn Beaudry and Nanette Goodsell.
It is a good opportunity to shop for upcoming Mothers' day gifts, for a special friend or even for yourself while enjoying the atmosphere of the historic Waverton Coal Loader Site. The artisans market will run from 9am to 3pm, rain or shine, at the Coal Loader Center for Sustainability in Waverton, only a short walk from Waverton train station.
