Amazing Indigenous Makers & Artists To Know

Styling Jun 17, 2020

Talk about beautiful details!

One thing I’ve always wanted to do is learn more about Australia’s Indigenous artists and makers, so I’ve taken some time recently to research and follow as many as I can. I always knew that that the first nations peoples of Australia have such amazing traditional crafts as part of their culture, and it has been such a pleasure to delve into the world’s of different makers, artists and collectives. The talent out there is truly impressive.

Waymbul Studio

The most beautiful handbuilt ceramics made by Meg Croydon. There’s a new collection coming soon!

Smoke and Ochre

Traditional Aboriginal bush medicines made by hand by three generations of Indigenous women.

Aboriginal Contemporary

Not so much a single artists as a gallery with the MOST amazing artists and makers. I want so many pieces of art after window shopping on this site, I have particularly fallen for these Betty Carrington artworks.

Bula’bula Arts

Bula’bula Arts is an Aboriginal not for profit organisation that aims to preserve and foster Yolngu culture. It sells so many incredible traditional creations including string bags and artwork.

Maara Collective

This beautiful resortwear line embraces a collaborative approach to creating pieces that reflect traditional skills and craftsmanship. Founder Julie Shaw, a Yuwaalaraay woman, aims to showcase and celebrate Indigenous art and fashion by working with smaller art collectives to create beautiful designs.

In case you’re in Brisbane and looking for a one stop shop with lots of creative indigenous brands, my friends at Open House West End stock a gorgeous array of items.
