CANBERRA'S SUNDAY BEST
OPEN EVERY SUNDAY FROM 10AM - 4PM

A Celebration of Wool (Saturday)

20 May , 17

Old Bus Depot Markets Theme Event - A Celebration of Wool. Skeins of wool

Wool is timelessly popular. Just ask the many craftspeople from Canberra, the region and interstate who come to create, demonstrate and sell this most fabulous of fibres. That’s why this year our Celebration of Wool is over TWO big days – Saturday 20 May AND Sunday 21 May. It’s a great weekend to meet and speak with wool producers, craftspeople and artists, view hand spinning, learn about hand felting and watch weaving. For the first time ever, this year’s wool days will also feature Makers’ Workshops in crochet and knitting as well as some seriously good wool demonstrations by people who love to knit, felt, design and make homewares.

What might you find? If it can be created in wool, you may just find it at the markets. Browse and buy hand felted garments and accessories, designer knitwear, millinery, weavings, funky beanies and farm label knitwear. There’s also a vast array of woollen yarns, including hand spun and hand dyed yarns.

    Themed Sunday: Multicultural Sunday

    Love experiencing different cultures? On the first Sunday of the month we add a touch of international 'flavour' to the markets. It’s like touring the world without leaving the markets.
