Hey Maker! Hiatus.....

Artists and creatives Belinda Smith, Ellie Beck, Jo Olive and Kathy Egan are the founding members of Hey Maker! They got together to form a collective in response to the growing number of retail stores in Murwillumb
ah closing their doors due to the economic downturn. Their aim was to enliven Murwillumbah's town centre by inviting all to interact with fun Pop Up Art Installations using recycled materials and the most simple of art resources. 

And now the last days of Hey Maker! pop-up shop are approaching. Hey Maker! Has this to say:

'It has been such a wonderful whirlwind of connection and creative happenings in our beautiful little shop. Have you come down to have a look yet? No, well - you'd better scurry on down. We are closing the doors on this Pop-Up on Saturday 22nd December at 2pm. 

There are so many amazing and perfect little gift items for your Christmas giving. Remember - shop local and hand crafted this Christmas (and at all times of the year). Really, who wants to go to the 'shopping malls' when we have such pretty little shops in our own home town who stock such pretty little things that are just exactly what your loved ones wanted.

There are art prints by Gretchenmist and Belinda Suzette - these are all archival prints, and a very affordable way to own your own piece of artwork. Ceramics are by Kathryn Mitchell - my little boy has his eye on that middle cup there! The ceramic pin cushions are by Hey Maker! Belinda Smith and look simply lovely on the wall or as a paperweight, or in your collection of beautiful things. Brooches pictured are by Jetta's Nest, Kimono Reincarnate and Edward & Lilly - we also have brooches by The Sentimentalist and BirchSeed. And the little hand screen printed pouches / purses are by me, Red Seed Studio. Fine porcelain by Pinky & Maurice. This is so beautiful to hold, come and check them out for yourself. Also, wrapped ceramic vessel by Belinda Smith.
Bottom image is: Christmas cards, gift tags, and decorations by BirchSeed. All hand block printed and stitched in Murwillumbah. And those sweet little softie chooks - BirchSeed makes them, as well as a wonderful selection of cushions, tote bags and other little pieces.

Come on down and take some loveliness home with you, before it all gets packed up!
