Tasmanian Craft

I am truly excited about our inaugural Mathilda's Market in Hobart. The calibre of applications is outstanding, and it almost feels as if the distance from the BIG SMOKE gives stallholders in Canberra, Hobart and Adelaide an edge to be more creative and open to new ideas ... It gives them the space to let their imaginations run wild! 

Today I am excited to share some fine examples of Tasmanian creativity. 

We already mentioned Ruby Victoria Letterpress in our blog a while ago, and I can’t wait to have a close look at her beautiful letterpress printed stationery.

Little Snoring (the name alone is intriguing!) is another example of fun craftsmanship. Creating softies and jewellery for young & old, Little Snoring believes the world should be filled with beauty, and in a child's hand there is nothing more important than simple, authentic and handmade objects. The collection includes Pocket Panda's, French Poodles and simple pendants featuring babushka dolls, birds, flowers and the Eiffel Tower.  

Rosalie from Notions Handmade creates fabric covered button brooches from hand screen printed fabrics and Japanese linen blends, creating brooches for both children and adults. Rosalie’s philosophy is to continue the theme of the fabric into the packaging, so that the consumer is buying a concept, not just an item.

Our inaugural Mathilda's Market in Hobart will be held on Saturday, 27 March 2010, at the fabulous Hobart Function and Conference Centre, One Elizabeth Street Pier, Hobart.

More stallholder sneak peeks to be shared soon. Better get on with preparing the Markets instead of drooling over the wares!
