CANBERRA'S SUNDAY BEST
FROM 10AM - 4PM

Creative Fibre 2018

Textile artists, be inspired!

Welcome to our dedicated webpage for Creative Fibre! The event will be held on Sunday 08 July, 2018 from 10am-4pm and will highlight stallholders who have a range of fabrics as their specialties. A number of creative workshops will also be held during the morning and afternoon.

Be inspired by the originality of the region’s most talented textile artists showcasing and selling their work at our annual Creative Fibre. This day offers an excellent opportunity to engage with the textile artists who call the Canberra region home. You’ll see products and learn about the processes involved in designing, printing on fabric, creating mixed media homewares and wearable textiles, weaving, knitting, crocheting, hand dyeing, and more.

Our workshops will be held in the Foreshore space in the front of the markets by the main entrance. Please bring warm clothing to make sure your nice and cosy throughout the duration for the workshop. See our workshops below and for all the latest updates, follow us on Facebook @Oldbusdepotmarkets

Market news

  • Old World New
    Owner Bruce McKenzie now focuses on upholstery and restoration in his current venture, Old World New. It embraces everything retro and antique. What's remarkable is that the furniture from Old World New doesn't only date back from the 70's or the 60's, but can even be 200 to 300 years old.
  • Yangoora Close
    With Creative Fibre on 8 July being right around the corner, Yangoora Close certainly has a unique fibre product in store with its beeswax food wrap coupled with an advocacy to live a life without plastic.
