Freshly maked goodies from Australia’s finest artists, designers and makers
Continuing on our crusade for creativity, Work-Shop have set up The Makery, an initiative to help local artists, designers and makers exhibit and sell their creations in a prime retail location without the headaches and costs associated with setting up their own shop.
Located at 106 Oxford Street, Work-Shop Makery flanks the emerging creative space precinct in Darlinghurst. The concept is simple. Vendors pay a small weekly fee to rent out one of the unique display environments in the shop, which you can customise and style to your liking. The Makery will sell your goods without any mark up or commissions so all of the “dough” goes to the maker.
We want to give creators the opportunity to connect with people on a grass roots level. Makers are encouraged to participate in “Meet The Maker” sessions where they can have direct interaction with the public to explain their inspiration, process, values and even do live demonstrations. Goods will be on display amongst a carefully selected pool of local talent.
“In the age of mass production, Work-Shop wants to reignite the value of things that are carefully crafted with thought and love. We also want to bridge the disconnect between consumers and where they get their goods from and give Australian makers an amazing platform to showcase their wares” says Chester Garcia, one of the founders of Work-Shop.
With the momentum and attention surrounding Work-Shop, vendors can be assured to get great exposure and media coverage. Not to mention incredible foot traffic from one of Sydney’s busiest and most iconic streets.
