This year a selection of our specialist stallholders attending Creative Fibre are offering specialist workshops in arm knitting, embroidery and quilting.
Calling all creative types! Time to ditch all things cyber, and get into all things fibre. Creative Fibre is on Sunday 9 July, and is the best day to engage with the textile artists who call the Canberra region home. Check out spinning and weaving demos, embroidery and arm knitting workshops, handcrafted homewares, clothing, hand printed textiles, tie dye kits, wool supplies and more.
It’s proven. Fresh is best. When it comes to the best foods for your body, the best idea is to ditch all packets and focus your eating habits on fresh fruit and veg. Our markets food area has some lovely fresh food for you each Sunday – like the selection of fresh fruit and vegetables from Rowan Farm Berries, and the lovely fresh apples from Treetops.
The life of a collector is most exciting. The thrill of the hunt for that perfect piece. Markets newcomer, Sarah Connell, knows all about that as she hits the markets for the first time this month with her business, All Tat Glitters. Coming from the junk style end of antique dealing, she sells quirky, classic, industrial and found objects.
Canberrans sure do love a new food product – something that looks pretty, they can take photos of and with, and that tastes delicious.
A reminder that this month’s A Celebration of Wool will be held over two HUGE days - Saturday 20 May AND Sunday 21 May. That’s two big days full of talented craftspeople from Canberra the region and interstate coming to create, demonstrate and sell Australia’s favourite fibre.
We’re bringing a little bit of the country, and one of the country’s best in sheep shearing, to the markets for A Celebration of Wool Catch live sheep shearing demonstrations from award-winning shearer, Ian Elkins, on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 May.
