So you think you'd like to become a member of BrisStyle?

Do you love to make things? Do you love handmade? Do you yearn to meet like-minded creative peeps to share your arty/crafty journey with? If you answered yes to these questions then BrisStyle could be for you!

BrisStyle is a not for profit incorporated cooperative with over 155 members who call Queensland home.

We formed in March 2008 through a shared love of making beautiful, quality items that we all sell on Etsy, the biggest global marketplace for everything handmade. Since that first little meeting over coffee 3 years ago, BrisStyle has grown into an extended family for those who's fingers itch and twitch with creative energy.

Through membership, we aim to provide support and creative opportunities to independent artists, crafters and designers living in Queensland.

As a member you will be able to take part in our fabulous giveaways and promotions and also be featured on our blog, website and Etsy Teams profile. You will also be able to participate in our world famous BrisStyle indie Markets (held in King George Square and Hamilton) and other key events, which are held at regular intervals throughout each year.

You will also gain access to our Forum where you can chat to other members, share ideas and gain invaluable support and advice in a casual, friendly environment and you are able to attend our very popular Information Sessions free of charge.

A dedicated Committee who facilitate your ideas as well as the day to day running of all group activities and administrative functions runs BrisStyle.
