Craft Hatch in the news

We've been getting so much attention from numerous magazines, journals, blogs and even the ABC for our current Chicks on Speed exhibition Viva La Craft, but nothing warms the cockles of our heart like seeing our special project Craft Hatch have its fair share of attention.

The Craft Hatch market is a capsule market designed to showcase the work of the best and brightest emerging designers in Melbourne (and sometimes Tasmania!). With up to twelve stallholders participating every month, each market is a lovingly curated event that features a mix of fresh talent and old favourites from previous Craft Hatch markets.

The market has been steadily gaining momentum since its inception in November 2008. The next market, our sixth, will be on Saturday 9 May. Keep reading CLOG for more information on the fabulous participants!

In the previous April market, we were so proud to be featured in The Age's Domain section (which is published every Saturday). Myf Kemp's adorable bear and lion blankies (softies made from recycled blankets) were featured in the snippet - hooray for Myf!

In the same week, Elena Lo's superb dino necklace was the focus image for The Leader's fresh section. Hooray again!

And just when we thought it couldn't get any better, May's Craft Hatch was plugged in The Age's Epicure pullout last week. The very talented Ms. Jules Musgrove's crocheted banana necklace was featured, so do drop by the market in May to say hi. PS, a little bird told us to expect more cute goodies from Jules like whale softies and more crocheted cuteness!

Also featured in the same page is a beautiful vase by COUNTER stockist Wendy Jagger, whom CLOG interviewed in an edition of Introducing... sometime last year.

The next Craft Hatch market will be on Saturday 9 May, write it in your diary!
