REMINDER: Two huge days of wool this month

2 May, 2017

Wool Skeins at Old Bus Depot Markets for A Celebration of Wool

We knew you loved wool. We see it at our A Celebration of Wool event each year. Which is why this year our most popular theme event will run over two BIG days – Saturday 20 May AND Sunday 21 May. So, will there be much wool there? You bet! So far, we have over 55 wool producers/stallholders booked in, and we’re still counting. This will be the weekend when many craftspeople from Canberra, the region and interstate – so far five Victorian wool producers are coming – come to create, demonstrate and sell their wool.

You can take part in our special Makers’ Workshops, browse and buy hand felted garments and accessories, designer knitwear, weavings, funky beanies and farm label knitwear There’s also a vast array of woollen yarns, including hand spun and hand dyed yarns, and live sheep shearing demonstrations across both days. A Celebration of Wool will be held 9am to 3pm on Saturday 20 May, and 10am to 4pm on Sunday 21 May. Entry is free. It’s bound to be a wild and woolly weekend indeed!
