Exhibition. Talks. Demonstrations. Food & Drink.

Factory Design District in partnership with COMMUNE is the new destination for design enthusiasts and industry alike. A showcase of local designers, makers and design manufacturers, this event focuses on the process of creation - from inception to realisation.


The new COMMUNE Makers space on Bourke Street Waterloo will come alive with talks from local designers, makers and manufacturers. Understand the process behind commissioning unique design items and learn how these highly skilled practitioners can contribute to your next project.

If you're keen to know where your objects, furniture or food come from, how it is made and by whom - this is the event for you!

Exhibitors: SIMCOX, The Fortynine Studio, The Authentic Design Alliance, ISM Objects, JP Finsbury Bespoke Joiners, LOCAL DESIGN, Tait, BoardGrove Architects, Dinosaur Designs, Fresh Prince, ILANEL, Jonathan West, Kristian Aus, Makers Lane, MUD Australia, and Timbermill.

Food and drink: curated by Young Henrys Brewing Company. Expect new culinary collaborations and awesome daily specials from Bloodwood, Mecca Coffee, Rising Sun Workshop, Urban Winery Sydney, Continental Deli and of course Young Henrys (beer, cider and Noble Cut gin).

Events: Whether you’re a design professional or design enthusiast, we have a full program over three days.  At least one talk and demonstration each day, a special dinner on Friday night and Sunday is market day with COMMUNE’s Locally Made featuring some of the best Inner West makers across fashion music, arts and crafts.
