From 2.30pm 7pm, the Woody Point Memorial Hall will be transformed from a community hall housing dance classes and craft workshops into a handmade marketplace as it becomes 'Handmade Redcliffe'.

Curator and Owner of the Market, Janmaree Lowe previously owned a boutique florist and homewares store at Clontarf Beach. For the past 8 years, she has been dreaming of creating a handmade market which would be held on the waterfront. She believes Redcliffe is the perfect place for an artisan market as it's a pretty place to visit for a day tripper and gives the locals a beautiful event to look forward to each month.

From 31st August, Handmade Redcliffe will move to Humpybong State School (again close to the sea as it's just across the road from the school). There is plentiful parking and the change of venue will allow more stalls to trade at the market and showcase their wares.

One of the things that makes Handmade Redcliffe unique is that it's a curation of all manner of handmade, supported by shoppers who are seeking niche, handmade products and who enjoy meeting the local artisans that make them. Janmaree handpicks each member of the artisan family that makes up Handmade Redcliffe. She believes that having great stallholders onboard is just as important as the products being offered for sale.

The 2.30pm start time means that this is a twilight market. It allows visitors to have a sleep in and then meander down to the hall at their own leisure. Once there, visitors can enjoy a hot chocolate, chai, tea or espresso coffee from a vintage coffee caravan, a woodfired pizza from Fire n Dough Woodfired Pizzas and spoil themselves with a sweet treat from The Chocolate Cakery or Sugarplum Cake Design. If you enjoy a good jam or chutney, why not visit Louise from Berry Good Jams and Chutneys.

Handmade Redcliffe - ballet theme

This Saturday's market will have a ballet theme to it because of the deep affinity members of the local community have with being taught ballet in the Woody Point Memorial Hall by Sharon Alback. Handmade Redcliffe has invited the Sharon Alback Dance Centre to perform intermittently between 3pm and 5pm on the stage inside the hall.

Many artisans have been busy making ballet inspired items such as hairclips by Little Lizzie, singlets with ballet appliques by Lil & Fred, embellished ballet shoes by Bears & Old Lace alongside ballet items for sale from the Sharon Alback Dance Centre.
