One-of-kind handmade artistic products @ Marker's Market
I love searching for new ideas for presents at Christmas; the ones that no one else has purchased and the one-off designs that will be yours alone.

Over the weekend of 11 and 12 December 2021, Hypmotive has teamed up with Maker's Markets to give you two full days of the best local artisans and makers from around Marrickville and beyond to showcase their products. Even if you think you have done all your Christmas shopping, be assured there will be another little something from the range of home and interior products, fashion, jewellery, lifestyle products, art and more to tempt and purchase for yourself or others.

Some of the Makers lined up for stalls this year are

Helen Nehill  mines the depths of the subconscious to create detailed and intricate psychedelic dreamscapes with fine-liner pen. Her pieces are exquisitely unique with no initial plan but creating underwater menageries, interstellar space and strange beasts.

Pitok is a visual artist creating personal painted works using gouache. He receives his inspiration from the traditions of Australian modernist painters such as Margaret Preston and Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints. His works are an exploration of self-identity, memory, the natural world and pop culture.

I like markets, especially themed ones. Even if you don't purchase anything they are a great pastime.
