SUMMER time has arrived in Fremantle with the return of the makers market, Bazaar 2018.

Up to 50 makers will be there on the day and stalls will include jewellery, fashion, ceramics, sculpture, woodwork and textiles items.

The designer behind one such stall, Prints with Bow’s Kathryn Heaney, said last year was her first Bazaar market.

“I’ve done few other markets since then this one has been best by far,” she said.

“I sell prints, a range of Christmas and non-Christmas cards and tote bags of the dingo.

“I had a really good response from people last year and it’s lovely to talk to people about the products and have them so well received.”

WildeFlower luxury candles owner and maker Fleur Barrett said she had enjoyed her first experience and was eager to join the event again.

“I just got in last year, I hadn’t even named the candles so I named them one to 10 and they became a hit,” she said.

“I thought I would give it a go, I didn’t know what to expect, I never sold a candle prior to this.

“This market has been the best by far, better organised, produce is really nice and the location is lovely.”

Fremantle Arts Centre director Jim Cathcart said his team spent weeks curating the perfect line-up of makers for the event.

“We look for diversity amongst the group, as well as a quality and creativity that delivers a shopping experience you simply won’t find anywhere else,” he said.

“Whether you’re stopping by to enjoy some live music and a bite to eat, you’re perusing the stalls for the perfect Christmas gift, or you want to settle in for a balmy summer afternoon in the Front Garden, there’s something for everyone at Bazaar.”
