With the return of The Big Design Market this September, so too comes the return of our inner art and design guru. Coming to Sydney for its fourth year, the three-day independent design extravaganza will take place at Barangaroo's precinct, The Cutaway. It'll feature more than 200 Australian and international stallholders, with everything from homewares and ceramics to clothing, jewellery and stationery — all of which are ethically made.

Plus, this year, the market has stepped up its game, with the introduction of The Big Design Mentor: a well-known Aussie designer, offering advice, guidance and insights to five designers who have stalls at the event. For the inaugural mentor, the market has selected celebrated Sydney artist and designer Ken Done.

Should you grow hungry mid-shop, you can grab a bite to eat from local favourites such as Shortstop, Fishbowl, Esti Garcia chocolates and Smoking Gun Bagels. Thirsty, too? You'll also find Rabbit Hole Organic Tea and Archie Rose among the many stalls, plus Tassie's Moo Brew and Willie Smith's Organic Apple Cider as well as Victoria's St Ali coffee, Billy Van Creamy ice-cream coming and Innocent Bystander wines from the Yarra Valley.

There'll also be a specially commissioned, 45-metre mural by South Australian artist and jewellery designer, Maylin Evanochko of Mazdevallia, which will serve as a colourful backdrop to an already (very) vibrant fair.

The Big Design Market will be open on Friday, September 20, from 10am–9pm; Saturday, September 21, from 10am–6pm; and Sunday, September 22, from 10am–5pm. Entry is $5 per person. To check out the full lineup, head this way
