craftwerk may 08

The most recent Craftwerk market took place yesterday at tetuhi gallery in Pakuranga. This weekends event was a lot smaller in scale then previous markets I have been too, but the stalls were just as great.
Not your average art & crafts market, Craftwerk is an opportunity for young & emerging New Zealand creatives to show & sell their work in a fun relaxed environment & for us punters to find new & imaginative goodies & support some talented people. Below is a small round-up of a few of my favourite finds of the day...

Nut and Bee - stationery range. This stuff is super cute, making it super hard to decide what to buy for someone who can't make up their mind at the best of times.

Ellie Smith - describes herself as an 'illustrator & maker of things'. Her stall consisted of a range of handprinted t-shirts, tea towels, cotton totes & stationery sets. Ellies items are also available from her etsy store misselliemay

Antifashionleague - a range of humorous tees with an underlying message promoting & encouraging us to wear what we want, when we want. Its clever & funny & i will definitely be buying a t-shirt when i have a few spare dollars.

Anemonecrafts - two crafty friends joined forces a year ago & have been creating bits & bobs for small children ever since. They have a range of cute clothes & collage artworks, & have also created a range of cards & bags for us grown ups.
