Aussie Designers are flocking to Bowerbird this May

Bowerbird, Adelaide’s leading showcase of Australian designers and makers, returns to the Adelaide Showground from 13 – 15 May. With the borders now open, visitors will enjoy local and interstate returning favourites, exciting new makers and talented emerging designers. We take a look at some of the returning talent, and newcomers to Bowerbird this year!

As we head into the cooler months, it’s a good idea to take time out for ourselves and reset. Bowerbird is the perfect place to treat yourself to a few self-care luxuries such as gorgeous body butters and soothing teas. Or if you have an urge to ‘nest’, you’ll find inspiring art, lush throws and pillows as well as beautiful ceramics, glassware and home scents. All to create your perfect winter haven.

You’ll find everything you need to get winter ready at Bowerbird with over 150 makers showcased, delicious food and drinks to enjoy and a relaxed atmosphere all under one roof.
