The City of Melville Open Studios Trail kicks off this Saturday for 2 weekends. A great opportunity to support local artists, buy original artworks and enjoy the opportunity to explore and discover the various wonders and hidden treasures within the City of Melville!
Isa's Igloo is excited to be part of this initiative once again and will be open on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th October 10am to 4pm. For more details and an electronic map visit: www.melvillecity.com.au/openstudios
What a funny Queens Birthday Long Weekend this year! No Perth Royal Show and no AFL Grand Final! But this coming Queens Birthday long weekend will see a little bit of Show Tradition at the Fremantle Markets with a supply of Showbags full of treats! and as for footy.....the WAFL Grand Final is scheduled for South Fremantle Oval on October 4!
Once you've grabbed your Showbag be sure to drop in and visit!
The Fremantle Markets are open all this long weekend 9am to 6pm each day Friday 25th, Saturday 26th, Sunday 27th and public holiday Monday 28th September!
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!
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.
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.
Find all your Treasured Craft Creations, maybe an antique, collectable or even a little vintage at the 3 in 1 Market at Claremont Showgrounds this coming weekend - Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th November, 9.30am to 4.30pm both days.
Where you'll find quality, handmade Pottery, Art and Craftwork with a difference for your home or garden.
