The Makers and Shakers Market will visit Melbourne again this April, bringing with it the whole kit and caboodle of bespoke ceramics, homewares and jewellery (as well as tasty food to rejuvenate you when you get the oh-no-I-just-spent-all-my-money sweats).
Kick things off at 10am with a coffee, spend a few hours browsing, and then chow down on a toastie, cannoli, doughnut or meringue. The market gives space to local makers to sell their handmade wares, with everything from resin rings to tomato chutney to be found.
Stallholders this time round include designer soaps from Fazeek, flowers from Little Jar of Happiness, granola from Humble Homies, whimsical lamps from Upswitch and linen homewares from Olioko Designs. And that's just the crust of the pie — there are many more to choose from when you take a full bite, and a free paper craft workshop as well.
