Local artists presenting DIY works


September 22, 2021 – Močvara Handicraft Fair organized by Udruga Avokado presents jewelry, cosmetics and handicrafts from local artists to the public while promoting an alternative and environmentally friendly way of life.

The Močvara nightclub in Zagreb, right on the Quai de la Sava (with Trnjanski Nasip bb being the address) has been known for decades for supporting alternative art and culture, music (punk rock, metal, indie and the most obscure extravagance of electro music), theater, literature, circus, etc. As TCN wrote a few years ago, the venue hosted Žedno-Who pre-Party with a performance by established Canadian musician, Marc Demarco. In recent years, Močvara has opened up more space for crafts and DIY culture.

In this spirit, the place is hosting a Craft Fair this Sunday, September 26, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., and admission is free.

The event is part of the Močvara Living Room (Močvari Dnevni Boravak) program, which takes place mainly once or twice a month.

The fair will offer visitors handcrafted jewelry, plant-based foods, drinks, clothing, toys and cruelty-free cosmetics.

So far, the event’s Facebook page has featured five local exhibitors who will showcase and offer their work to visitors.

Free Goats is a new project with the “objective of visually expressing a completely personal perception of daily observations”. The different themes are united by elegant simplicity, and visitors can view and purchase stickers, original designs and smaller prints. Most of the work, as the project description highlights, is done on recycled paper.

Handcrafted resin + metal jewelry is inspired by the everyday woman (from red lipstick to spiked girl).

Tallulah’s Workshop is a vintage-inspired female collective making scrunchies and headbands with various patterns and floral decorations.

Longtime producer and percussionist Dangerous Beats recently switched to tie-dye t-shirts and alcohol ink.

Last but not least, Jelena lončarić’s handcrafted jewelry comes in all sizes, shapes and colors.

With these five local artists confirmed, the event page states that requests to participate are still open until September 24. Just like entry to the event, participation in the presentation of your work is also free, but you must send a letter to This e-mail address is protected from spam.

Udruga Avokado Avokado (Association Avokado), promotes a vegan diet and ecological sustainability.

With the aforementioned space for arts and alternative lifestyles, the Močvara Handicraft Fair is one more event that connects local artists with the public and gives space to a less conventional expression.
