Last Saturday's Craft Hatch market at the City Library was a flurry of activity, with over 400 visitors counted (admittedly it did get a bit difficult to keep track after a while...), all of whom avid supporters of craft and design. The great turnout was no doubt in response to the wonderful media attention the market received in Three Thousand and in The Age during the week... thanks guys!
For August, Craft Hatch participants were asked to produce work that responded to Craft Cubed festival theme CITYCOUNTRY. What resulted was a beautiful selection of work ranging from Alex Bletsas' architectural rings, tram cushions by Jennie Barnes (both of which were big hits at the market), a gigantic plush hamburger cushion by Gemma Patford, fine jewellery from graduating students at RMIT's Gold & Silversmithing course, and much much more.
A big thank you to all who came down to say hi, you made everyone's day! For those of you who missed out, here's a peek at how the day went.
The lovely Charlotte Tizzard of CSerpent, who was sharing a table with Kate Brereton.
To whet your appetite, come along next Sunday 23 August to peruse beautiful objects by Nicholas Jones, Studio Sam, PHILOS-o-FACE and many more fabulous artists...
