The Wollongong Makers Market showcases the talent of artists, artisans, craftsmiths and makers from the Illawarra and Southern Highlands. For one day only the UOW's Innovation Campus becomes Wollongong's own handmade shopping precinct, and the perfect place to find unique gifts of exceptional quality. Our next market will be held in May 2019, just in time for Mother's Day.
Come along to browse over 70 stalls displaying outstanding examples of pottery, jewellery, woodwork, ceramics, silverware, fashion and knitware, artwork, cards and much more.
There will be a wide range of food stalls to suit every palate and art and craft activities for the kids. We are also inviting local art educators to come along and promote their classes and workshops for adults and children.
You can also support recovery programs for threatened species of the Illawarra in partnership with the Office of Environment & Heritage's Saving our Species program, which will have an information display at the market.
