Fremantle Markets Re-opening 10th July 2020

Fremantle Markets is due to re-open this coming Friday 10th July ????

I’ve had my workout for the day and boxes are packed, car is loaded and I’m ready to get down there for set up….whew! 

You will find me there this weekend - 10th, 11th & 12th July - and next with a bundle of new pieces from both myself and Judy.

To get started, opening hours have been reduced every so slightly with 9am to 6pm - Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

Looking forward to seeing you out and about in Fremantle ????

3in1 Market Postponed

The 3in1 Market at Claremont Showgrounds was due to be held this coming weekend 18th & 19th April. Unfortunately, due to current COVID-19 restrictions this has been cancelled and we look forward to attending again at a later date.

Like many other stallholders, I was mid-way through preparing for the event when the cancellation was announced, so I do have many new pieces ready and available and waiting for new homes! Many would make wonderful Mother's Day presents!

Temporary Market Closure

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to snowball, more and more events, gathering places and travel restrictions are coming into play and slowly but surely Perth along with the rest of the country is "locking down", in a bid to curb the spread and beat the spread of this virus.

The Fremantle Markets, being my main outlet, is closing as of this weekend (from 27th March). The closure is indefinite, and at this this stage may well be 4 - 6 months.

Likewise, planned casual markets I normally attend - Perth Makers Market at Heathcote and 3in1 Markets at Claremont Showgrounds have been cancelled or postponed.
Also, the Guildford Village Potters have closed their doors to the public til the end of April, although this is likely to be longer.

In the meantime, and on a positive note, I will have some good creative and production time! Now is a great time to contact me for special orders!

Please keep an eye on this site and on the ISA's IGLOO POTTERY facebook page for updates of life in the workshop in the coming weeks.

While we all get our heads around this, please stay safe and healthy.

Perth Makers Market @ HEATHCOTE

February already! In fact it's nearly March!

I'll be at the Perth Maker's Market at the Heathcote Cultural Precinct this coming Sunday 23rd February 2020! The Market is held in & around the grounds of beautiful, beautiful Heathcote - I'll be on the verandah near the kiosk which overlooks both the river and playground.

Hours are 9.30am to 3.30am. Parking is in the "paddock" below for a gold coin to Rotary. ACROD bays only are available within the grounds on Market Day.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
