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?
