The next Wollongong Makers Market will be held on 30 November 2019, at the UOW Innovation Campus, Squires Way, North Wollongong.
This market is timed to reach Christmas shoppers and will encourage customers to buy handmade and locally produced goods.
If you draw, paint, knit, sculpt, sew, work with clay or silver, turn word or beat iron, we would love to have you sign up to our market and showcase your wares.
We're also inviting local art educators to come along and promote their classes and workshops for adults and children.
With only one market in 2019, spots are expected to fill up early, so book your stall space now. Once your application has been accepted, we'll share the news on social media to help promote your work.
The market is held on the outside forecourt of the Central Building (the first building on the left) and meanders through the foyer and upstairs into the beautiful, expansive function room. It commences at 8:30 am with pack up at 4 pm.
Promotion + advertising
We have seven banners going up around Wollongong to promote the market, along with our Facebook page, media releases and postcards placed in cafes and tourist information centres etc. Please let us know if you would like some of these postcards to distribute to your contacts.
Stalls which have an inside position can set up the day before the market, from 1 to 4 pm. Your stall position will be available from staff on arrival.
Stalls located outside the building will need to set up on Saturday morning.
The main body of artisan stalls is located in the function room upstairs. There are two lifts to this room. If you have heavy goods there will be one trolley for your use, otherwise we recommend you bring your own.
All goods in the function room are secure overnight as this room is locked. The foyer area is not locked so we recommend if you are located in this area you set up without stock, i.e. only tables, screens, props etc.
On arrival, please park in the loading area outside the Central Building. Unload your goods onto the footpath and then park in a carpark before setting up your displays.
Please contact us for more information.
