Craft Hatch November wrap-up

Last Saturday's Craft Hatch was our busiest yet with around 600 visitors to the market, which was no doubt due to the fantastic quality of makers involved in this month's market. It was a bustling affair, with plenty of smiles, happy visitors and even some brown sugar biscuits on offer (courtesy of this delicious recipe from trotski + ash)

On behalf of everyone, thank you for coming down to the market and making it such a wonderful affair. We'll see you at the next one on Saturday 12 December, and then again at the State Library on Saturday 19 December for a special Christmas market involving 28 makers, a lot of them who will be participating in Craft Hatch for the first time. But more information on that later! For now, here's how the market went on Saturday.

Wooden brooches and earrings, along with handmade aprons by Gemma Johnson.

Nancygirl leather accessories and cards by Sue Manski. Watch out for Sue at the upcoming Christmas Craft Hatch market at the State Library of Victoria!

Laser cut wooden brooches by LabthreeOfive.

LabthreeOfive consists of seven architecture students and they recently won the New Craft/Healesville Sanctuary brief to design a series of animal-themed coasters with pop out badges for the Zoo. Congratulations guys! You can check it out here.

Limited edition prints by Dawn Tan.

Do check out Dawn's blog, where she's written some kind words about the market. Aw, thanks Dawn!

The very exciting debut of Tasty Pixel digitally printed cushion covers by Sheena McKinnon.

Helping Sheena out on the day was her buddy Raph of Design Droplets. Raph has also written a lovely article on the market which you can view here.

Super cheerful felted accessories and homewares by Melinda Hawkes

Sharon Russell was back and better than ever with more knitted goodness. She was also knitting some golden lightbulb cosies for an upcoming Christmas window display at enCOUNTER. Keep an eye out for it!

Thanks for making it such a great day everyone!
