Artisan Jacquie Garcia of Leiluca Ceramics creates the most beautiful glazes on her vessels. If you want to pick up a beautiful gift, for a lover of
handmade ceramics, then visit the maker at the Winter Seasonal Olive Tree Market at Maitland Regional Art Gallery. There will be lots of special,
one off pieces, to choose from choose. Make sure to come early as Jacquie's work has become very sort after.
Pryshan's clay stones may look deceptively simple, but they are actually created by makers from hand pressed organic clay. Pryshan's stones work as
an amazing natural exfoliant for the body and the face, they draw out impurities in the skin, even the skins complexion, and bring back a natural
radiance and glow to the skin. And they are 100% natural and are made very strong so they actually last forever. Meet the makers at our upcoming
Olive Tree Market Winter Seasonal Pop-up at Maitland Regional Art Gallery.
Artist Stepahanie Elizabeth creates stunningly vibrant animal watercolor paintings, which predominantly focus on endangered and threatened species.
Stephanie’s work is not only incredibly detailed, but shows the joy the artist obviously feels about the animals she depicts. Many of Stephanie's
works are inspired by the time she spent living on the great barrier reef, and she aims to spread awareness about the need to preserve our natural
world. Stephaine says her artwork aims to be fun and affordable as well as having an environmental and sustainable backbone.
We are in love with the beautiful serving boards created by clever Olive Tree Market maker Maddison of Madams Handmade. Each board features a one-off
wood burning artwork, perfect for special occasions with your loved one, or just to celebrate the weekend with something bubbly and a platter of
goodies with your friends! Maddison also creates beautiful picnic tables which are perfect for making special breakfasts in bed with treats picked
up on market day.

The Farmer's Wife Distillery
If gin’s your thing then get ready to be spoilt! After a long term career in the corporate world, The Farmer's Wife Distillery founder Kylie Sepos
decided that launching a craft gin distillery would be the next phase of her life. Kylie wanted to be one of the lucky people that get to pursue
their passion and craft distilling seemed the perfect fit. Simple?! Not one to do things by halves Kylie read up on all there is to know on gin
and distilling, completed a distilling course at Redlands Distillery in Tasmania for hands-on experience, and then a course at Melbourne Federation
University which focused on the biochemistry side of distilling, and enlisted Tasmanian Peter Bailey to custom build the still to her own design.
After an 18-month wait, The Farmer's Wife was born and the rest as they say is history. Kylie truly has the alchemists touch, and her Autumn Gin
in not to be missed!
