Stall Holders

Every Thread Counts: Every thread counts is wearable art from nature. Handcrafted in Canberra, ETC designs are made from natural fibres and are practical and easy to wear – like a second skin. Each piece tells a story and holds the fragrance of leaves that gave colour to the cloth. This is sustainable, slow fashion.

David Harding Smith – Artist

Ginninderry Trash and Treasure

Eryka Garbutt Designs: Eryka Garbutt Designs’s motto is jewellery as individual as you are. No two pieces are the same. Each item is a unique piece. The style is elegant, and just a little different to the mainstream.

The Gumnut Ladies: An artists’ collective that began when they originally started coming to lessons at Strathnairn. They will be displaying framed and matted works in graphite, watercolour, acrylic, and pastel.

Bent Shed Produce: Bent Shed Produce aims to bring the flavours of native Australian food to the general Australian kitchen. They do this by growing their own produce and providing a direct incentive to others who may be considering growing produce suited to the local Australian cool climate. With the Australian native herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables, they create infused salts, sugars, mixes, and little baked treats, making these unique flavours as accessible as possible.

Historical Dress ups

Missy Minzy: Irene Tan is the artist illustrator behind the label Missy Minzy. Drawing and designing have always been part of her life. Missy Minzy started off as a platform for Irene to continue with her creative juices while being able to bring up her own family. It then evolved into a nice happy place with many big dreams, which she loves to see continue going places. You can see her original artwork across many products. They are well designed, and made with lots of love. Quirky, whimsical, colourful, fun and joyful are the essence of her illustration style.

Global Sisters – Makers (Craft Sisters): Global Sisters supports women that experience barriers to participation in mainstream employment by providing an alternative pathway through entrepreneurship. Come and meet and support the Canberra Sisters that will be trading at Springfest 2018!
