Craft Hatch in December

Not too long ago on a wet Saturday in December, Craft Victoria held its second Craft Hatch market at the City Library. This time, we had 12 stallholders joining us and each maker's work demonstrated such a high level of quality (and charm of course!), it truly made us blush with pride upon seeing such a young group of talented people under one roof.
With 5 makers in the gallery and 7 in the seminar room, December's Craft Hatch presented a wide array of beautiful work to choose from. Our next market will be this Saturday, 24 January so do come along!

Here are some images from the day:

Ceramic jewellery and accessories by Simone Hede

Fine jewellery by a talented bunch of students from Box Hill TAFE

A closeup of Box Hill TAFE student Jodie Welch's pretty silver jewellery.

Upcycled leather brooches and fabric bags by Mingus (aka Dear Songsuwan)

Sustainable AND cute! That's how we like our accessories here...

Jules Musgrove (who also owns the loveliest vintage shop - Poppet in North Fitzroy!)

Vince Letterpress stationery by Meaghan Barbuto

Meaghan revives ye olde artistic practice of letterpress and makes it super fresh!

And over in the seminar room around the corner, we had more fabulous makers waiting to be uncovered... Greeting you at the entrance were students from RMIT's Gold and Silversmithing course. Their table was quite the crowd-pleaser and yours truly had a tough time trying to squeeze in to take some photos!

Buttery soft leather bags by Christiane Poulos

Ceramics by Elise Bishop - the 'rock pool' bowls are ideal for dipping your sushi into some soy sauce

Look at the wall children's wall art by Monique Gaspar

Luxe knitwear by Wendy Voon (it's a good thing the weather was on her side!)

Jude Ng's stall featuring beautiful t-shirts, accessories and jewellery (some of you might remember from the last market!)

Devastatingly handsome leathergoods, scarves and artwork from superduo, Woot 'n' Wright

Don't forget everyone, the next market will be this Saturday, 24 January from 11am to 4pm at the City Library. Looking forward to seeing you there!
