About Renegade Handmade

Born and bred Townsville local, Karissa Chase is the owner and founder of the Renegade Handmade brand. Renegade Handmade is a strictly Australian made brand, with a major focus on North Queensland products.


As a trained Potter, Karissa had sold at over 300 markets in Australia and overseas before creating the Renegade Handmade Market.
“I had been showcasing my designs at amazing markets and I felt as though there was a literal gap in the market for exclusively handmade products in Townsville.”


“In 2013, Townsville’s creative community was crying out to be heard. I could see no reason why our city couldn’t host a market only for handmade goods.”
