ADC Makers Market

Australian Design Centre's boutique outdoor Makers Market is back for the first time in 2018! With a distinctly Darlinghurst vibe this is a friendly local street market that emerges in the morning and is gone by nightfall returning the streets to local people.
Alongside the blockbuster exhibition 'Obsessed: Compelled to make', the Makers Market features more than 20 local Sydney artists that have been selected for their exceptional work. Handmade, designed and collectible pieces including textiles, jewellery, ceramics and homewares will be for sale by the makers. Come and enjoy the market atmosphere under the big marquee as we close off Palmer Street and invite Sydney's most talented creators to showcase their work.
When: Saturday 10 March, 10am - 4pm
Where: Australian Design Centre, corner William and Palmer St, Darlinghurst NSW 2010
Free entry. Follow the Facebook event for more information here.
