Meet the Makers
Meet the Makers is a craft market exhibition that showcases what is unique to Artisan: beautiful handcrafted objects and stories behind them. With a festive craft marketplace atmosphere and makers in residence every day, visitors will be able to witness makers at work and have the opportunity to hear about and buy their creations. The exhibition also launches the dedicated ‘Meet the Makers’ digital showcase on the Artisan website, which profiles an ever growing number of local makers. Bringing together a selection of local makers from jewellers to textile artists and ceramists to fashion designers, all of whom are passionate about telling their story, this exhibition offers a unique opportunity to Meet the Makers.

This exhibition explores the nature and potential of ‘production’ jewellery and its relationship to one-off pieces within an artist’s practice. It features the work of Queensland College of Art students, staff and alumni who create production jewellery and small objects as part of their creative practice. Purchase your favourite Production Run pieces in our retail store for the perfect hand crafted gift.
SOS is presented in partnership with Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art. SOS is an exhibition space dedicated to showcasing the college’s best small object works from students, staff and alumni.
