Gift Inspiration For The Holiday Season

By Makers Gallery

This year at Makers Gallery our focus is on our pay as you go system.

Why? We value working around our Makers and Collectors (have you heard about Makers On The Road?)

We are always more than happy for you to message our Instagram or text 0417 886 185 to discuss a plan that will work around your budget. Why? Because we want you, your family and your friends to have beautiful things around you with no pain.

We started November winding down from Steve Williams’ Holocene. Let us know if you missed out on seeing this – we have works we can show you. We have also started putting together Kalyanii Holden’s (Jade Tree Ceramics) focus. In addition to this, on top of study and placement and life-things with the help of lots of coffee, we found some time to look through our collection and put together our 2022 Christmas gift guide.

As always, all works on the online store can be delivered from our hands to yours in Brisbane Metro, picked up from Clayfield or posted (this includes postage Australia-wide and overseas – not just over the Tasman Sea either. Our last postage made it safely to Canada)!

… and if you can’t quite decide just yet, or would like to leave it in the hands of your giftee, we can issue a gift card to a value of your choice. We also offer services at Makers Gallery, so get in touch if you feel a class, mentoring, or object-photography session with Tony would be a suitable gift. Tony Webdale is the genius behind the imagery on the Makers Gallery website so a photography session gifted this Christmas would be a gift that keeps on giving for any Maker or business owner. Tony also does head shots, family photography and event photography. Let us know if you would like more details on that.

Beautiful works below. Pay as you go.
