WHAT PREVIOUS STALLHOLDERS SAY
Young Blood designers have gone on to open their own stores, establish and grow their studios and further develop their own design profiles and practices.
“The Young Blood: Designers Market was a great opportunity to promote my work and have recognition from an important institution [such] as the Powerhouse Museum. It helped me to build more audience and reach a higher level of business opportunities.” Domingo, mi-wallet
“… I was less concerned with sales … and more interested in interaction with individuals viewing the work for its artistic/design merit initially. That is exactly what happened. There were industry and design centres that expressed their interest… I even had students contacting me after the Young Blood: Designers Market to ask about process and artist statement etc. I absolutely love sharing my knowledge and experience.” Varuni, VaruniK Ceramics
“It was my first visit to Sydney for Young Blood: Designers Market at the Powerhouse Museum [in] July 2012. It was truly an amazing experience for me as I just started my business. We were given one full day to set up so next day I was feeling relaxed and excited. I also got some good advice from my fellow designers. People appreciated my work which is a great feeling and motivated me to provide good customer service. It was overwhelming to see how much importance is being given to handmade work. By the end of the market, it felt like it was worth all my efforts and hard work. My work is now selling in two retail stores in Sydney.” Puneet, Kinetic Patterns
