Much like the Broome Courthouse Markets, founded by her late mother Claire Howard, the Perth Upmarket offers local artisans and creators an opportunity to exhibit their skills and craft.

Event and business coordinator for Perth Upmarket Andrea Hayes said the markets provided a perfect opportunity for incredible talent from WA artists to be discovered.

“We are delighted the regional designers and artisans make the trip to be part of the Perth Upmarket, bringing their artistry and creativity to a wider audience,” she said.

For its 15th year running, the next instalment will be hosted on June 18 at the University of WA’s Winthrop Hall.
