Featured businesses

Artist wall

Pamela Gough

Pamela Gough's contemporary landscapes are narratives featuring character houses embedded with stories and symbols. Inspired by patterns in the landscape, her celtic origins and a passion for preserving colonial architecture, these textured works scratch at the surface of life to reveal the spirit of place, especially her own backyard of Brisbane. Often embedded with the illustrative details of historical maps, her works make connection to the past and look for direction in the everyday map of life. From the whimsical houses dancing on ridges to the texture of corrugated roofs and fence palings, and with the ever present calming colour blue, her works celebrate life and spirit and invite the viewer to take a deeper look at what they see beneath the surface in their own backyard.

Window display

Lyssy May

Alyssa, of Lyssy May, was taught embroidery from a young age by her grandmother, Thelma, who emphasised the importance of care and attention to detail. Reflecting a time when handmade items were created for both utility and beauty, all Lyssy May products are carefully handmade for customers who appreciate the time, effort and love that is woven into each product. Not only does Lyssy May offer small batches of ready-made products, but also bespoke services where you can co-create a design, or repurpose a piece you already have into a new Lyssy May product.

Eleanor Harris

Eleanor Harris' love of pattern design started at age 12 after attending her first after-school batik class. This passion for design led Eleanor to study Printed Textile Design and find a career in fair trade textiles and creative community recycling projects in East Africa.

While on maternity leave in 2016, Eleanor sought a new creative outlet. Having come across polymer clay, she bought a few basic tools and started creating jewellery.

From making a single pair of earrings for a friend, to more custom requests and a Christmas market stall, the Eleanor Harris brand was born.


Remade by Roz

Roz of Remade by Roz is passionate about preventing waste. Why put something in the bin if it can be given a new life, new purpose, or new adventure?

Roz has been making jewellery and accessories for over 25 years. Learning the art of turning plastic into plarn (plastic yarn) and plastic fabric has changed the way she looks at the world. Roz sees endless opportunity to turn 'trash' into wearable art and versatile products, with every item created being truly unique.

Her pieces are inspired by people in her life, things she sees and does, and those all-important words - reduce, reuse and recycle.
