This weekend Marrickville’s incredible creative space Hypmotive Hub will be giving the local community an opportunity to engage with the human faces behind the incredible works available in the store.
The Meet The Makers Marketplace is a unique opportunity to not only browse the wide selection of items ranging from clothing and handcrafted jewellery to homewares and local creative workshops, whilst also enjoying live art demonstrations and live music.
“Hypmotive is all about inspiring and empowering people to live creatively. Part of how we deliver this is by providing a platform and retail space to emerging and established local artists, designers and makers so they can grow their small independent business and continue to develop their creative ideas,” said co-owner Renee Russo. Bearing this in mind Meet The Makers allows the community to build a personal relationship with the people behind the creative works that they love and thus forming an even stronger bond between the artists, businesses and buyers.
Attendees this weekend will have the opportunity to meet emerging artist John Watts, from Pitok who was recently selected by a panel of industry experts as an emerging Australian artist to watch, Lauren Voc the creative mind behind minimalist, handcrafted jewellery brand Ayana, Yoko Kawada who will be showcasing her Kintsugi ceramic range in collaboration with visual artist Seema Stamou (Kintsugi is the traditional Japanese art of golden joinery), John Shepherdson from Light Industrial whom specialises in vintage and industrial lighting and Pete Sutherland from Common Wood Co who has innovated homeware items by using recycled skateboards decks and reclaimed Australian timber to handcraft his wood wares range. Plus many more!
