[26-28 August] MakersMarket 2016 - A Celebration of Craftsmanship & Urban Lifestyle @ Grand Indonesia
A Celebration of Craftsmanship & Urban Lifestyle
26-27 August 2016, Grand Indonesia
WHAT IS MAKERSMARKET?
MakersMarket is a 3-day pop-up market by MarketPlays
that aims to express the meaning
behind Indonesian craftsmanship, celebrating its works,
and educating to the public its various forms of identity and values.
We would like to bring appreciation and recognition to the diligence
of our local craftsmen, and reintroduce to the general community the eloquence of it
that has been lost through the changing times.
We will be putting a particular focus on craftsmanship, but will not be limited to it.
We are aware of the culture that surrounds it, and other related items of urban lifestyle nature.
Therefore, expect to find the denim to your leather goods, and the completing shirt to your natural-dyed top.
Leather Goods - Woodworks - Ceramics - Handmade Jewelry
Denim - Apparel -Home & Living - Food & Beverages
Ranging from leathercrafting workshops up to calligraphy and natural dyeing,
we would like to show the public the earnest hard work that goes into a single crafted item,
and invite them to experience it first hand. Learn from some of the best local craftsman
who genuinely love sharing their art with others.
In aims to educate and broaden the general public’s view on craftsmanship,
we will be providing several clustered exhibition spaces and displays where on-lookers
may learn more on what goes into the creation of a certain product,
or the history behind specific crafts.
There will be several competitions held on the days of MakersMarket, while some will be pre-event extensions.
For example, our leather goods patina competition will start months before MakersMarket,
with the top 10 being displayed throughout the event, and winners announced at the end.
Stay tuned for updates on our competitions, and be sure to join in.
We would like to invite all members of MarketPlays to join us in this celebration of craftsmanship and urban lifestyle.
