Maker & Community Market

 Saturday 20 November | 9am – 2pm

Meet our stallholders

Angie Izard Ceremics

I make contemporary ceramic tableware in my home studio in central Victoria, just outside Daylesford. My work is thrown on a wheel and then decorated using slips and oxides. The stoneware clay is then high fired in my own kiln. Inspiration is drawn from the fleeting moments of beauty that are everywhere.

Bene | Bernadette Aitken

 Handmade items, all original pieces, hand-printed and dyed by the maker. (Myself)
Silk scarves, silk-velvet devore scarves. Reversible bags. Homewares including cushion covers, tea-towels, wheat bags, fabric notebook covers. Lengths of fabric (silk or cotton) printed and dyed for use as tablecloths, sarongs or for the customer to make into their own garments.

Deb Weston Maker

Debbie’s making practice has evolved from silverware to fibre and textiles as creative outlet, through the medium of weaving. Her creative foraging and making manifesto has evolved into finding the unwanted materials at op-shops in the forms of clothes. She unmakes the unwanted into yarn to be included in her weaving practices.

Deborah Klein Creative Services

Housewares and personal items based on my practice of creating low-relief paper sculptures.
For the Maker & Community Market I will feature:

  • Flying Freak Veranda Flags
  • Plastic Paper Lamps
  • Desktop Paper Relief Sculptures
  • Wall-Hung Relief Paper Sculptures
  • Plastic Paper Flowers
  • Notecard Sets

Effie

I create brightly coloured handpainted fabric textiles. Such as bags, tea towels, aprons, pencil cases, cushions.
I use screen printing ink that is heat set and machine washable.
Each piece is original and affordable. I make art that is accessible, practical and adds cheer to our everyday!

FEAR – The Femxle Experience Art Rebellion

The Femxle Experience Art Rebellion produces a range of handmade jewellery (mainly earrings), limited edition badges, art prints (various sizes), handmade greeting cards, small to medium collages, up-cycled display plates, handmade key-rings and more.

Gary Johnston

Gary’s paintings are miniature works on sedimentary rock with a ceiling date of 1200 million years. He works in oil and specialises in wildlife.  His work often has a utilitarian purpose such as pen holders and paper weights. 

Jenny Oxworth 

Jenny creates colourful fabric tote bags, pin cushions, coasters, handbags, fabric purses and knee rugs, she is making very good use of her retirement by engaging in these beautiful creative pursuits.

Oaky and Ginger Upcycled | Simone Reid

Oaky and Ginger is filled with up-cycled treasures from everyday items, such as old board game pieces, cards, postage stamps and old children’s books. Every item is uniquely special and the perfect way to bring quirkiness and nostalgia back to life.
The goodies used for these random, handmade creations are sourced from opportunity shops, garage sales or donated to me by fellow crafty friends who think its a good idea to off load their old stuff to me to then turn their old stuff into adapted, up cycled treasures
 

Otway Opals | Jacki Pyke

 I work with opals and other gem stones in silver settings, Roman glass, maille, and I also fold origami.
 

Toxic Plant Girl Designs | Shannon Bais

 I handcraft earrings that are for everyone, safe for all ear types and unique. I understand I am late in enquiring but would love to be apart of this event or the next one similar.
I’m only really starting out on my journey but am loving it and want to share it with people more and more to bring them a bit of extra joy.
 

Woo Hoo Jeweller | Wendy Joy

I started making these necklaces for myself, in colours I just love. In no time I found I just couldn’t stop making them. The process of creating is meditative and when I wear them I feel joyous. I hope you love them too.

We thank the City of Ballarat for their support of this event.
