Featuring 120 artisans and local makers at the Xmas Market, you'll find homewares, art, fashion, jewellery, accessories, and tasty treats. Beat the Christmas rush and get in early to shop local. Get something unique, handmade and different for that special someone, as you take in the great market vibe.
Heide Makers' Market is a collaboration between two well loved Melbourne institutions; the Heide Museum of Modern Art and The Rose St. Artists' Market.. It's made its mark as one of Melbourne's premier destinations to see some of Melbourne's best makers. Located in the cradle of 30 stunning sculptures across the 15 acre site, while you're there, explore Heide's three galleries, stunning architecture and fifteen acres of gardens and sculpture park.
One of Melbourne's best-known and most-loved artists and recently deceased at the age of 90, her distinctive works have adorned our city like no other. A bohemian, she emigrated to Australia in the 1950s from war-torn France and infused and transformed the culture of her new home. She's left her mark all over the city in murals, mosaic, art on the exterior of a tram and even a clothing collection. Don't miss her exhibition while you're at the Xmas Market, of some of her most personal work; drawings and soft sculpture dolls from her home and studio where she kept them close for many decades.
