Adelaide Bowerbird Bazaar

A market to give Adelaide designer/makers a stage to show their
work locally

The void of a quality design market in Adelaide has been filled by the initiative of South Australian creatives Rebekah Cicero and Jane Barwick.

Bowerbird Bazaar – a market held twice a year for established and emerging designer/makers – was born out of sheer passion for design.

“We both go to trade shows and everything seems to be interstate,” Rebekah says. “We decided we should bring something to Adelaide.”

With Rebekah’s clothes and fabric label, Sprout Design, and Jane’s label with Iris Saar Isaacs, in-sync design, both designers know the importance of specialised trade shows to help promote a product.

“The market is about providing a quality platform for designer/makers to showcase their works and for established designers to launch products,” the pair explains.

While some designer/makers use the internet to help promote their products, the Bazaar means buyers can get up close to these unique products.

“I think people still like to come in to a shop,” Jane says.

Consumers also have the chance to meet face-to-face with the people who made the objects, or as Rebekah and Jane say: “meet the maker behind the product”.

The March Bazaar will feature furniture, artworks, lighting, jewellery, glass-work, clothes and other textiles from about 70 designer/makers, half of which are South Australian.

Bowerbird Bazaar is on the 26, 27 and 28 March and on 8, 9 and 10 October 2010 at Queen’s Theatre, Adelaide.
