Canberra is a city that loves markets – from food festivals to pop-up night fairs and fashion extravaganzas. Now a new market is about to launch, which celebrates and promotes independent designers, illustrators and makers from the Canberra region.
Inspired by the success of popular markets in other Australian cities like The Finders Keepers and Supergraph, Show & Tell aims to provide an opportunity for local designers and creatives to showcase their artwork and products at an event that centres around the theme of contemporary design.
The market will feature 28 stallholders selling art prints, t-shirts, greeting cards, stationery, ceramics, furniture, terrariums, kokedamas, jewellery, candles, accessories, original artwork, wall hangings, textiles and more.
In addition to stalls, Show & Tell will also have local illustrators creating live art, and a colouring-in competition run by illustrator Paul Summerfield. There will also be a papercraft workshop by ALTA Papercraft and a flower crown workshop by Peony‘nPearl.
After being on hiatus from the Canberra market scene, Design is Yay is joining the Show & Tell market, offering new illustration art prints featuring portrait of popular icons such as Frida Kahlo, Coco Chanel and more. So don’t miss out!
