Some of the local makers this year include:

  • Helen Nehill - In her work, Helen mines the depths of the subconscious to create detailed and intricate psychedelic dreamscapes with fineliner pen. Rarely working from an initial plan, she uses stream of consciousness to depict underwater menageries, interstellar space, and strange beasts. 

  • Maine + Mara – Their edgy and unique accessories are designed for the bold and the brave. Handcrafted right here in Sydney, each colourful and contemporary piece tells a story. Intended to uplift its wearer & influence the celebration of individuality & strength. 

  • Outer Island – Founded by Amy Ranck and Stephanie Chambers, they are bringing awareness to the magic of this world by creating souvenirs that focus on native plants, animals and habitats with all products being 100% Australia made. 

  • Pitok – A visual artist creating personal painted works using gouache. Drawing from the traditions of Australian modernist painters such as Margaret Preston and Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints, his works are an exploration of self-identity, memory, the natural world and pop culture.
