Craft Hatch: Valentine's Day special!

An example of fine jewellery from Box Hill TAFE students.

Coming up this Saturday 14 February (Valentine's Day or just another Saturday - depending on your point of view!) is Craft Hatch, Craft Victoria's market for emerging talent. This month, welcome back some of your favourite makers like leatherworker-extraordinaire Christiane Poulos, fabulous stationer Vince, furniture maestros Studio Hip and ceramicist Moj Habibi - just to name a few! We'll also be joined by two new fresh faces - toys and homewares designer Myf Kemp of Fontok and gemstone jeweller Janine Kleyhans.

Our last market in January was a roaring success with over 450 people attending throughout the course of the day, which can only mean one thing - Craft Hatch is a market to watch! The market now has a regular date at the City Library on the second Saturday of every month so be sure to write that down in your diary.

Pun-tastic Attire necklace by Catherine Preston. Made from LEGO parts, you'll never 'tire' of this! Hehehe!

Bamboo ply chair with brushed stainless steel legs by Studio Hip - the bamboo is renewable within 5 years which makes it a highly sustainable material!

Beautiful calling cards by Meaghan Barbuto of Vince.

Don't forget, the market is spread over two areas so be sure to wander down to the Seminar room after you've perused and purchased from the gallery stalls!
