THE FINDERS KEEPERS                                                                  MELBOURNE 

October 2017

The Finders Keepers is a design market, that features the work of independent makers and designers from across Australia. Founded in 2008, the Finders Keepers has now grown to be Australia's leading design market. With events held in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, the market promotes and supports over 1200 sellers each year.

More of a festival than a market, the events combine design, art, good food, live music and a fun community spirit under one awesome roof in major city locations. Our markets are a unique experience to shoppers with each visit, with new sellers being showcased at each event. We have always sought out beautiful venues with historical significance to host our events, further reinforcing the sense of wonder to shoppers and stallholders alike.

Attracting tens of thousands of visitors to each event, our markets provide a retail shopping event to the general public like no other. With something for everyone, our events provide a solid channel for shoppers mindful of conscious consumerism, and those seeking to actively support small, local businesses.

Thank you to everyone who came along and supported me at my first Finders Keepers event - it was a huge success!​

"Abstract art inspired by life"

What began as a hobby quickly blossomed into an in-demand business for local artist Rachel Bainbridge.

Having previously working as a schoolteacher, it was when she was on maternity leave that Rachel returned to painting and started experimenting with new techniques and mediums.

“My artworks are all inspired by the energy I see in my children,” Rachel explained.

“They stop and notice the little things that we as adults often miss in the everyday chaos.

“My aim has always been to create artworks that challenge people to stop and look a little closer to appreciate the detail and layers, and for that moment think of nothing else but what they are seeing. An escape, a chance to stop and appreciate the little things.”

“The fluid nature of resin enables each piece to form its own unique form. It’s only when you come close to an original work that you can see & appreciate the finer details in each and every piece. Mixing resin with oil, acrylic, pastel, pigment and ink challenges the the structure of each piece”, Rachel says.


Let Rachel’s art take you away…..she believes that “taking this time out to appreciate the little things is something I have learnt from my children and that as adults, we so often forget to do as the chaos of day-to-day life can get in the way.”

THE ART-HOUSE SERIES

as featured on Rebecca Judd Loves

I love adding greenery to my interiors. It’s an instant mood enhancer and makes a space feel lived in and alive. So imagine my joy when I came across The Art-House Series, the perfect combination of nature and art by bringing together on trend terrariums, kokedama moss balls and airplants with contemporary resin art.

The brainchild of Sarah Triolo of Glasshouse Terrariums and Rachel Bainbridge of Rachel Bainbridge Art, these two creative women have joined forces to create a range of beautiful pieces of art and living greenery for the home that are all unique and can be custom-designed to incorporate individual colour schemes.

The series consists of both a monochrome and pastels collection with various resin art hanging platforms, a modern take on the vertical garden using resin artwork to hold airplants, resin art trays as bases for kokedamas and hand painted resin terrarium bases.


Products from the range will be available at The Finders Keepers Market during 22-24th July 2016, at The Royal Exhibition Building- 9 Nicholson St, Carlton.

Art & nature combine to create gorgeous range of living decor

AMY COLLINS WALKER


Our obsession with beautifully presented indoor greenery continues and we’re loving the latest interpretation of the trend, the Art-House Series. A collaboration between Melbourne mothers Sarah Triolo of Glasshouse Terrariums and artist Rachel Bainbridge, this new range offers low-maintenance living decor that fuses nature with art – terrariums, kokedama moss balls and air plants combine with contemporary resin art for a gorgeous result.

“Our Art-House Series currently consists of both a monochrome collection and a pastels collection with various resin art hanging platforms, a modern take on the vertical garden using resin artwork to hold air plants, placemats as bases for kokedamas and hand painted resin terrarium bases. We have created pieces that are fresh and original and full of heart. We would be proud to have these in our homes and we hope our customers feel the same,” says Sarah Triolo.


And if, like us, your thumb isn’t exactly green, this range is ideal. The abstract painterly qualities of the air plant wall hangings aside, we love that the plants survive literally on air! In addition, not only do these plants, terrariums and indoor plants generally require minimal maintenance (perfect for our time-poor lives), they also take up a small amount of space for something that can have such great visual impact. We love the abstract painterly qualities of the air plant wall hangings, made from waterproof resin. “Resin art is water resistant which is an important quality when being used with plants and the sleek glass-like finish is the perfect complement to a terrarium range,” says Sarah.

Mamamia Lifestyle Blog – Feature Article : Affordable artwork that will light up any wall

by Lizzie Morton

6th September 2015

“I find it is a great way to communicate with people. It isn’t just about the art, or making pretty works, it is about what people take away from it themselves.”


Resin is unpredictable, fluid and dynamic. And it has inspired Melbourne based artist Rachel Bainbridge to begin her own business. Every single piece in her collection (made of resin, acrylic, oil, pigments and ink) is completely unique. “It is unpredictable as a medium, so people can take away from the work what they want, I have no idea how any piece will look when I start out. It reacts to different things in it’s own unique way, like oil and pigment together can react completely differently on resin. It is really powerful.” Bainbridge explains.


“I find it is a great way to communicate with people. It isn’t just about the art, or making pretty works, it is about what people take away from it themselves. There are many, many layers to resin works, in many ways it reflects what I am all about.” Bainbridge has a background in ceramics and drawing, and after completing a visual arts degree at Monash, she began teaching art classes. “I have always been a creative person. When I was younger, about ten years old, I would write and illustrate story books and send them off to publishers. I kept drawing all throughout high school and at University.” Bainbridge says. Now she has turned her passion for creating into a business, selling her vibrant works which light up the walls.

“Colour and vibrancy has always struck a chord with me. I do my art in my own way, and work with colours that I want to use in a particular moment. I often work when my husband is home, and my kids are asleep. That is what is great about using resin as a medium, it sets so quickly, so you have to work fast. Working in that moment and with that energy really speaks to me.” Bainbridge says. Bainbridge spends her time, in-between creating her art, teaching, and being a mum to her three children, who are all under the age of five. Most of her pieces are completed in between kinder drop off, making meals and nap time. “Life is always about balance. Especially motherhood. It is usually during the weekend or at night that I can go and find a quiet space to be creative.”


“My children also astound me with their curiosity and the way they notice little things. As adults we don’t notice, and don’t taking the time to stop in the day and appreciate the little things. This is my inspiration. Curious, intriguing, and never stop moving. That’s my kids and also my style of artwork.”
