Take the opportunity to become part of a community of local artisans, individual makers, and craftspeople, showcasing your product to thousands of potential buyers. Artisan Lane was established in 2019 as a way of supporting local artisans by giving them an opportunity to showcase their craft in front of thousands of potential buyers.

This exciting feature ran for the first time at Sydney Gift Fair 2020 in partnership with the ‘Buy from the Bush’ campaign and was a huge success, bringing media attention from the likes of the Channel 9 Today Show and Channel 10’s Studio 10.

Wandering through the lane, buyers experience a creative community of artists, clay workers, jewellery makers, craftspeople, and wood turners, watching as they handcraft bespoke products in front of them. Artisan Lane allows you as the creator to expand your business outside of your community to key wholesalers, retailers, manufacturers and distributors in the Gift and Homewares sector.
