The 2021 Wollongong Makers Market will be held over two big days at the Illawarra Sports Stadium in Berkeley:
- Friday, 26 November from 2 to 8 pm, and
- Saturday, 27 November from 9 am to 3 pm.
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.
The event will of course be COVID-safe, with wide aisles and plenty of space between stalls.
We have limited stall spaces available, and spots are expected to fill up early, so apply now. Once your application has been accepted, we'll share the news on social media to help promote your work.
Promotion + advertising
We'll have banners going up around the Illawarra to promote the market, along with our Facebook and Instagram pages, media releases and postcards placed in cafes, libraries and tourist centres. Please let us know if you would like some of these postcards to distribute.
All arts and crafts stalls will be inside the stadium. Further information will be sent directly to accepted exhibitors.
Food stalls located outside the building will need to set up on Friday morning.
As the hall is used for netball and other sports, we need to be mindful of the timber floor. We cannot allow tents or gazebos, and we'll have carpet tiles on hand to be placed under anything too heavy or abrasive. Stiletto heels cannot be worn in the stadium.
Please contact us for more information.
