Makers Christmas Artisan Market returns to Norman Lindsay Gallery

The fourth annual Etsy Made Local Blue Mountains Market in the heritage gardens of the Norman Lindsay Gallery at Faulconbridge will be held on Saturday, November 23.

Crowds of more than 4000 are expected to attend this year.

Held on the same day nationally, Etsy Made Local is a market run by sellers who make up the community on Etsy.com.

A dedicated committee of volunteers, the Blue Mountains Makers Inc are passionate about promoting local artisans as well as showcasing traditional methods of making. This event is highly anticipated by stallholders and attendees alike, and is a wonderful way to find unique handmade gifts that help Australian small businesses grow.

There will be more than 50 curated artisan stalls, as well as refreshment stalls selected from an amazing collection of applicants from all areas across the Blue Mountains and surrounds. With a wide range of products on offer to suit all tastes, as well as a children's entertainment, face painting and workshops, it is an event the whole family can enjoy.

"With our fourth year looking to be our best yet, we are so excited to bring this wonderful event back to this iconic venue. This is a market organised by artisans themselves so this event is special to us all, we love the diverse creativity in the Blue Mountains and are especially proud to organise a market that brings us together," said Nisa Stone, Blue Mountains Makers Inc Committee president.

The market will be held at Norman Lindsay Gallery, 14 Norman Lindsay Crescent Faulconbridge from 9am-3pm. Free entry into the gardens. Some parking behind the venue, please follow Rotary's directions. Disabled parking on site. Two shuttle buses will be available between Springwood station and Norman Lindsay Gallery at half hourly intervals throughout the day. Cost $2 each way, (under 12s travel for free).
