I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.
Gifts and Treats for All
The last chance to visit the Heide Makers' Market for the year is on Saturday May 11th, and yes it's the day before Mother's Day, which may be the perfect and last day to buy gifts for your Mum. Where better to buy that special design, artisan or handcrafted gift than at this market ?'
Heide Makers' Market is a collaboration between two well-loved Melbourne institutions - Heide Museum of Modern Art and The Rose St. Artists' Market. Set in the very picturesque surrounds of the Heide Museum of Modern Art sculpture park, this is the perfect place to shop for beautifully handmade work, for your Mum or someone else, and chat directly to the makers about their work, inspiration and creativity.
There is always an eclectic mix of art, design, handcrafted goods and tasty treats all made with skill and love by artisans and creative stallholders. Ceramics, clothing, jewellery, and treats for humans and their canine companions will all be there for you to peruse, buy and taste. You can check out the large range of products here.
Why not explore the museum itself too, if you have the time? There are three galleries, stunning architecture and fifteen acres of gardens and sculpture park to explore, there is something for everyone. You can get more details as to what's on here.
