Join Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artisans at the iconic Blak Markets at Bare Island La Perouse Sunday, February 24 from 9:30am to 3pm.
Arts and Craft have always been a focus at the Blak Markets and this market we will have the famous shellworkers from La Perouse, Auntie Esme Timbery and Marilyn Russell doing a shellwork workshop and selling their art.
This market will also feature Native plants including bushfoods, which are being developed by Indigigrow, the other social enterprise arm of the charity who runs the Blak Markets.
The Blak Markets are a great chance to buy authentic unique gifts knowing that 100% of the profits go back into Aboriginal communities. The Blak Markets feature authentic, original and affordable Aboriginal artworks, beauty products and one-of-a-kind homewares and jewellery as well as Indigenous inspired food and refreshments.
Along with a dance performance, Aboriginal singer/songwriter, Maddi Lyn who has a deep passion for Country Music will be singing on the day, along with a interactive session for the kids with Larry Brandy Storytellers.
