Etsy and Pinterest addicts, listen up: the Creators Market is back for 2016
The Creators Market, the quarterly artisan market brought to us by Megan Luscombe and Gwen O'Toole (the clever clogs behind event and communications company Ideas Library) is heading our way, bringing together a talented bunch of makers, bakers and craftsfolk for our shopping pleasure.
Previously, the Creators Market ran special editions to coincide with events like Midsumma. While the next chapter doesn't have a theme per se, the unifying factor is beautiful design. For instance, the market features Tian Ceramics' delicate handcrafted works. Tian You, the artisan behind Tian Ceramics, has a background in landscape architecture. Design and nature clearly intersect in her work, which features lovingly crafted rings, bowls and vessels.
Keep an eye out also for herbal teas and tisanes hand-crafted in a wooded knell up in the Dandenongs by the Wild Nothing bunch. Their teas are touted as being good for everything from a broken heart to an upset belly. Tea is pretty miraculous in our book, so we don't doubt the claim.
