In order to broaden our horizons, we are in the process of changing the name and look of the 9" x 5" Quality Makers Market.
Over the next few months, we will have a new name, and a spiffy new logo on our banners and postcards.
So, what's in a name...
The name 9" x 5" Quality Makers Market was originally chosen to represent the history of Banyule, in particular the artists of the Heidelberg School. The Market is now approaching its 2nd birthday, and the wide variety of high quality work produced by our stallholders is not adequately reflected in the name.
In the meantime, it's onwards and upwards - our next market is on Saturday June 20th, 10.00am - 4.00pm.
The stunning work featured this month is by jeweller Di Bloomfield. Di makes handcrafted lampwork glass beads, which she then turns into one-off bracelets, necklaces, bookmarks, key rings and more.
I'm in love with the red and white spotty bracelet (sigh)
Di is a new stallholder at Ivanhoe Makers Market - Created by Hand, and we welcome her to the show, and look forward to seeing what new creations she has each month.
