NEW Diary Date: TWO huge days to celebrate wool this year

A selection of brightly coloured wool balls of the Old Bus Depot Markets for a Celebration of WoolWool 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 A Celebration of Wool is over TWO big daysSaturday 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 knitting, crochet, macramé and felting, as well as some seriously good wool demonstrations by people who love to knit, felt, design and make homewares.

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, weavings, funky beanies and farm label knitwear There’s also a vast array of woollen yarns, including hand spun and hand dyed yarns.
