Artisans from across the State are expected in Dunsborough over the March long weekend for the Dunsborough Art Festival’s annual art market.

Coordinator Jacquie Happ said the markets were unique in offering only hand-made products sold by the maker.

“People get to meet the person who made the product,” Mrs Happ said.

Stalls will include the likes of hand-made timber products, paintings, soaps and candles, textiles and fabric, jewellery and sculpture.

Mrs Happ said the Art Market was the central focus of the Dunsborough Arts Festival when it started about eighteen years ago.

“The first Festivals were based on the promotion of arts and crafts from the district,” she said.

“Over the years the festival has evolved into a highly popular four day event embracing a wide range of activities, including what is now regional Western Australia’s biggest sculpture competition.”

Applications for stalls are available at president@dunsboroughprogress.com.au and cost $35.

The markets will take place March 3 from 8.30am-3pm at the corner of Dunn Bay Road and Geographe Road.
