Sarah Kalidis- Studio Onethirty

My name is Sarah Kalidis;  director of Studio Onethirty in Carss Park Sydney, and founder of the Love Local Artisan Market.

Back in January 2018 I opened my studio store in the St George area. The first of its kind for our community; the concept warmly embraced by locals and visitors to southern Sydney. This got me thinking, that our area is significantly lacking in avenues to discover our local arts and design talent. And so I began working on ideas to harness the interest from customers and creatives I had met through the store. My idea was to create an event as a meeting place for our local community. Celebrating what makes our area of Sydney so unique and fabulous! Bush, bay, river and beach all on our doorstep; a melting pot of cultures and cuisines.

In December I was awarded a 'Vibrant George’s River' Community Grant from Georges River Council to help establish the 'Love Local Artisan Market' event; a platform for local artists, creators and makers, to come together for community. The name celebrating our people and our places.
