designed; made aims to

  • engage the community with design

  • support emerging designers and makers

  • evolve and strengthen our design network

Every year it just seems to get bigger and better, and the December event was the first to be held over two days in both Launceston on Saturday 30th November at the Design Tasmania Centre, and at the Princes Wharf No. 1 Shed on Sunday 1st December in Hobart.


Our next designed; made will be held on Sunday May 4th 2014. click here for forms and info on how to appy to be a stallholder.
