Designers On Show
at The Coal Loader Waverton

March - Sat 27th & Sun 28th

Last October (2020) Designers On Show was relaunched as part of Sydney Craft Week. The show brings together Australian designers and makers for this now bi-annual event, allowing you to meet the makers. October was a huge success, and with the lifting of social distancing guidelines, we have even more makers in this year's event.

Meet our Makers & support Australian small business. Images below link to designers' website or social media.
