Seasons Greetings & Fremantle Markets Trading Hours

Wishing everyone a very happy and safe Christmas and New Year.

Thank you for your support during 2023 and I look forward to creating new ideas (lots of them!) and seeing you in 2024

We are trading at Fremantle Markets right up until Christmas Eve – Friday 22nd, Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th – 9am to 6pm. Then there is an extended lot of trading starting Wednesday 27th December right through to New Years Day!!!

Stay safe and see you again soon!

Perth Makers Market @ Heathcote

Hope to see you at Goolugatup Heathcote – 50 Duncraig Road, Applecross on Sunday 17th December, 9.30am to 3.30pm.

Beautiful grounds to enjoy a beautiful day out with the Perth Makers Market as a bonus!!

I’ll be located on the verandah behind the clocktower over looking the kiddies playground!

It’s that time of the year….AGAIN!!!!

The “pointy end” of the year is fast approaching!!!

Isa’s Igloo has maintained our presence at Fremantle Markets, in conjunction with fellow potter Judy Nastov – and although our styles and products are quite different, our work seems very complementary to each other.

I haven’t had Isa’s Igloo out and about much in 2023 but I will be attending the Perth Makers Market at Heathcote on Sunday 18th December with some very new pieces becoming available then.

For the moment, I ask that you bare with me while a necessary change in Web Hosting Supplier is working my very non-techno head overtime and a few little glitches are being discovered with this site, which I am currently sorting out.

COVID update

We have been so, so lucky in Western Australia! Life has pretty much carried on as normal, and only now are we experiencing our first true “lockdown” since March last year! At this stage the lockdown finishes 6pm Friday 5th February 2021….fingers crossed that all goes to plan!

On that note however…Fremantle Markets will be CLOSED on Friday 5th February (with the exception of the Fruit and Vege section which will trade only between 9am to 4pm).

The general market area (the entire market) will re-open on Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th normal hours 9am to 6pm.

In the meantime, and on a positive note…. I have 5 days of uninterrupted creative time…. !!

City of Melville Open Studios Trail…..

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

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 ????
