Craft Hatch program supports emerging makers and who have never had their own market stall before. The program includes mentoring and professional development guidance, and is a perfect way to get a face-to-face experience.Once again it lived up to all of that .
It was held at the same venue as last time, in inner city Melbourne, which was good for consistency for me.
Here is an overview of my day. It is mainly photographs and few words and sketches this week. I did not have time and forgot to take photos during the day or of my own stall. This blog post and my memories are my record of the event.
All packed up and waiting for my taxi to arrive. I have figured out how to carry this on my own, However, it is too awkward for public transport .
everyone setting up at the venue
The Markets were open to the public from 10- 4 and then we packed down. There was a constant flow of visitors through the day .
There was a guitar player/singer for a few hours and he was set up just around the corner behind me. The subtle background music was lovely and created a warmth through the room .
Some of my cards and my full up banner, I am SO pleased that I invested in this banner, I very proud of it and it does define my stall.
sketches of the day
I was able to do a few quick sketches during the day. There was a very quiet time after lunch.
I made some sales and had some wonderful conversations with customers. I also learnt a lot from other stall holders. There a was a wonderful vibe to the day .
