A Time to Celebrate All Things Wool

3 May, 2011

Winter is on the way and there is no better way to warm your body and your soul than with Wool. Hand felted garments and accessories, designer knitwear, millinery, weavings, funky beanies and farm label knitwear it’s all being featured at our upcoming Wool day at the Old Bus Depot Market.

In this its 16th year, you’ll get the chance to see some old favourites and meet some new Woolly friends as Craftspeople who work with wool join us from as far afield as Victoria, South Australia and close to home in regional NSW.

Chat with a member of a regional guild, watch demonstrations of hand spinning, hand felting, and other traditional wool based crafts. For the curious, adventurous and the well experienced woollies among us, a Celebration of Wool is a great way to spend a day at the markets (And there are definitely no prickly jumpers in sight!).
