Redeeming the ruin...the art of consumption

Our next market will be held in conjunction with this very interesting exhibition. You'll get two for one!

The exhibition is also the work of Banyule City Council and is running from the 22nd October to the 29th November. The exhibition is open at the Banyule Arts Space from Wednesday to Saturday from 11am to 4pm with special Sunday openings on the 26th October at 3.30pm and of course from 11am to 4pm on the 9th November, our market day.

For further information:

The 9"x5" QMM will be open on the 9th November from 10am to 4pm.

Should be an inspiring day.

Kids fun at the Makers Market

Our wonderful jeweller Shirley teaches Ava to make a necklace.
This Sunday October 12 Shirley will be running kids jewellery workshops; we have a demonstration of Japanese braiding by the Melbourne Kumo Himo Society; a musical performance by Accent Music School Trio, as well as our fantastic market buskers Sam and Luke.

We welcome new stallholders this week:look out for Ricardo and his spectacular woodturning, Threadneedles and Bloom, who make the prettiest silk ribbon wedding accessories and bookmarks we've seen in a long time, and Artopia, makers of original glassworks.
Look forward to seeing you at the 9" x 5" Makers Market.
