Whanganui artisan makers will be selling their wares at Space Studio and Gallery's Make and Marvel night markets this weekend.
Space owner Sarah Williams said Make and Marvel was the galley's newest event and she hoped to host at least two night markets a year at 18 St Hill St.
"What we have is the art gallery itself, accompanied by artisan makers and artists," Williams said
"Then we have our studio open upstairs, and we are also hosting two workshops as well.
"The ethos of the event is celebrating makers, really."
Williams said the market's opening night on Thursday had a success, and the stalls had brought a "really cool dynamic" to the rest of the gallery.
"We had really good feedback from everyone that came along.
"Hopefully people are relaxing into their long weekend and looking for things to do."
Rachel Dickison's drawings and prints are front and centre at the entrance to the gallery.
"My thing is just sitting down and drawing for as long as possible, and getting as much detail as I can," Dickison said.
"I have two very distinct art styles here.
"One is the quirky animals with human-esque personalities, and then there are the collages of iconic actors and films, and celebrating pop culture.
"Coloured pencil, high detail, that's what I do."
Ruche Handmade Beeswax Products also feature at the market, and founder Hannah Li said one of the focuses for the business was using "less plastic".
"All my beeswax is from local beekeepers, all my printings are local, and I try to source everything else from Sustainable Whanganui," Li said.
"I really try to raise awareness about reducing waste and about choosing to live more sustainably.
"The recipe I use makes my wraps really long-lasting. Even after 12 months they are still going well."
David Traub from The Glass Factory in Gonville has a stall at Space and is selling blown work that has been cut up, infused and slumped.
"All of it starts out in the hot glass studio over at New Zealand Glass Works," Traub said.
"I go over there once a week and do around three hours of blowing, then I haul the material back to my studio and manipulate it."
• The Make and Marvel night market is on today from 5.30pm to 8.30pm at Space Studio and Gallery.
