Taking place at RMIT next month is the first ever Wonderkind Bazaar. An array of handmade products will be for sale, created by students who are enrolled in creative courses, or have creative hobbies. This is a fantastic chance students to gain exposure for their work - and some financial reward! It will also provide an opportunity to meet like-minded peers, see each other's work and get feedback in a professional and community environment. I think it's a great idea to encourage hobbyists as well as those currently seeking careers in design-related fields. So many people I know are pursuing careers that developed from hobbies & loving it!
If you're a crafty creature & happen to study at RMIT, perhaps you should book yourself a stall! Don't be shy, and definitely don't miss out on this opportunity... (The only cost involved is a $20 refundable deposit.) For more information, check out the Facebook event page. To enquire about becoming a stallholder, email Mia & she'll fill you in on the details!
If you live in Melbourne, add these details to your diary!
