A Celebration of Wool at the Old Bus Depot Markets

Meet craftspeople from Canberra, the region and interstate to see the amazing things they create with wool.

When? Sunday 19 May 2013

Why visit? To meet and speak to wool producers, craftspeople and artists, view hand spinning, learn about hand felting, watch people weaving and try on handmade woollen garments. Mix with stallholders, craft enthusiasts and other visitors who love to knit, felt, design and make home wares.

Stallholders and items you’ll find: Hand felted garments and accessories, designer knitwear, millinery, weavings, funky beanies and farm label knitwear. A vast array of woollen yarns, including hand spun and hand dyed yarns. Stock up on woollen hats, scarves and socks in time for winter.

Market news

  • NEW – Bonne Bouche Patisserie
    Bonne Bouche Patisserie is our brand-new stallholder whose gorgeous pastries have been creating quite the stir on social media and beyond. Specialising in eclairs as well as other delights, Bonne Bouche’s pastel pastries are as visually appealing as they are a delight to the tastebuds.
  • Everything old is new
    Antiques have made a comeback. There’s no doubt about it. Art deco trends are here to stay, and the luxuriousness of antique, one-of-a-kind pieces is just one reason they’re so popular. Portobello Road in August, on the 13th, is coming up fast, so if browsing collections of distinctive pieces is your thing, then you’re in luck.
