A favourite Gift Fair feature is Artisan Lane and Melbourne Gift Fair is delighted with this year’s curated cohort. Think street market meets cottage industry and immerse yourself first hand on how individual products are made as our artisans weave their magic up close and personal, right in front of you!
A wander through Artisan Lane is an immersive experience giving you insight into the processes and meanings behind the product. Make real connections with not only the artist, but the story behind the artist, in the things that bring products to life to give them that intrinsic value and point of difference in your retail shop.
