Making it easier to just start making

Supporting Makers

Wild Rumpus has worked with hundreds of local makers, artists and creatives over the last 4 years. From 2013 – 2016, Wild Rumpus ran the twice yearly Makers Market, a high quality showcase of Illawarra based makers, plus a program of pop-up classes, live music, kids space and great food and drink.

We also work with Makers and Creatives by inviting them to teach their craft to others. The act of teaching affirms the value of their work to the community, builds confidence in their work and highlights their business. Interested in teaching? Get in touch! hello@wildrumpus.com.au
