May 4th Mother’s Day Market at Olive Tree
The Olive Tree market will hold a special Mothers Day Market on May 4th- the perfect opportunity to find beautifully unique one of gifts created by the talented community of Olive Tree makers. The May 4th market will be a celebration of Motherhood with lots of beautiful work to be found for Mothers Day gifts.
Not only is our community predominately made up of women but the majority of our makers are mothers themselves. It always amazes me that these woman are not only artists and designers but frequently juggle other employment to help support their families all while being mothers. It is inspiring that they are able to constantly create and make new work and often have their children at Olive Tree on Market day. Many of these women have stalls throughout their pregnancies and are back at Olive Tree with brand new babies. It’s also really lovely to see many of our stallholders’ support each other as women and makers and many collaborative partnerships have come out of these connections.
Stalls featuring unique gifts for Mothers Day include:
Kyoko Peacock, originally of Japan, has been a regular stallholder since 2010 and makes elegant women’s clothing including stylish tops and waistcoats in Japanese fabrics. Her latest range, available at The Olive Tree Market Mother’s Day Market, includes a gorgeous waistcoat in cherry blossom fabric and red silk lining, Funky skirts by Becky Carver of The Heron & The Fox complete with hand screen printed panels, contemporary ceramics by Sandra Lee Brown of Paisleys on Harrison, one of textile art brooches by Christine Rutherford of Monkey & Bee, delicate contemporary lace collars by Nuria Mestes of Chompa, wearable ‘steampunk’ art necklaces by Arthouse Industries, home wares featuring upcycled textiles by Laini Byrne of Handmaiden Vintage, skin care using natural products and essential oils by Lhami.
There will also be delicious handmade gourmet food products for mothers who appreciate locally made artisan food products. Including organic wine from Mill Creek Vineyard, handmade chocolates from Cocao Nib, delicious Chai from Bon Chai, wonderfully flavoured olives from Arolyn Grove and dukkas and oils from A Taste of the Bush.
