Melbourne, Australia
Market dates for 2010: 8 May, 12 June, 10 July

Craft Victoria is pleased to be partnering with the City of Melbourne’s City Library to hold Craft Hatch – an incubator market for student and emerging craft designers.

Craft Hatch is a professional development opportunity for makers to test their products and receive instant feedback. It is also an opportunity for you to raise your design profile, gain confidence and network with other emerging makers.

The City Library is the centre for learning and creativity with up to 3,000 visitors a day. Craft Hatch has been designed specifically for students and emerging designers looking to build their market confidence in one of Melbourne’s busiest CBD retail precincts.

To be eligible, stallholders must be students or emerging craft and design practitioners. All products sold need to be 100% handmade in Australia, demonstrate a high level of creative design, and be of sound quality. Stockists of Craft Victoria's store COUNTER are not eligible to register for a stall.

1 table measuring approximately 75cm (H) x 155cm (L) x 80cm (w), plus 2 chairs are available.

2010 Stall Rates
$15 for Craft Victoria members, $30 for non-members and $50 for groups of 5 or more.

Please note that EFTPOS facilities are unavailable at City Library. Stallholders must provide their own cash float. Free wireless broadband access is available at the Library, and stallholders are welcome to bring their (fully-charged) laptops if they wish to offer Paypal or direct bank deposit as payment options.

Craft Hatch is held on the second Saturday of each month from 11am to 4pm.
