melbourne design festival happenings

I'm starting to get some of my prints ready to participate in the Bamakko stall on the 20th July at the Melbourne Design Market. It's part of the fabulous Melbourne International Design Festival happening from 17-27th July this year. Each year a lot of really exciting designers, crafters and artisans get together to show and sell their work at this market. Being part of the Bamakko stall is especially exciting because they do so much to promote handmade local products and art in this lovely city. Bamakko's regular shop in North Melbourne (358 Victoria St, North Melbourne) is also going to be part of a fun thing called Projekta 57 during the festival. On 2 Saturdays (19th and 26th July) you can jump on the inner north-west number 57 tram and hop off and visit a whole lot of shops showcasing art, fashion, homewares, furniture etc and meet and talk with some of the people who make the stuff. How cool is that?


  1. Fantastic! Are you on schedule? I'm sewing like crazy to get my stuff to Bamakko ;)
    it's gonna be so much fun...yay!

  2. I'm trying to get organised but just had a one hour fight with the computer to make labels :(
    Other than that all seems ok. Can't wait to see how the stall looks with everyone's goodies on it!

  3. OOhhh!! I am coming from the west for a holiday in Melbourne and will be there on the 27th! thanks for the instructions on how to get there.

  4. Yet another reason to move to Melbourne. Just to tease those of us up north and beyond, please post some pics. Thanks and good luck with sales. I forgot to mention the silk cut foundation are running a linocut competition run out of Glen Eira City Council. You should enter some of your beautiful dragonflies.

  5. oh my - that sounds like a great sale!!!
    i wish it werent 20 hours away from me!
