Visit Creative Fibre on Sunday 11 July – and enter our competition!

28 June, 2010

We’re getting set to host our unique July creative theme day, Creative Fibre, on Sunday 11 July.

Creative Fibre stallholders will be exhibiting and selling textile jewellery, hand silkscreened textiles, vintage Japanese kimono fabrics, paper quilting, silk and wool felting accessories, handmade rugs, scarves and silk, textile screenprinting, contemporary handspun art yarn and more. The ANU School of Arts, Textile Design, and Megalo Access Arts will also be on hand, along with Canberra Regional Guilds, to demonstrate on the day and be available to answer questions.

To celebrate Creative Fibre, now in its seventh year, we’re running a competition. With every purchase made at the Old Bus Depot Markets until Creative Fibre is held on Sunday 11 July, you’ll go into the draw to win a copy of the book Textiles: Complete Contemporary Craft, 75 Beautiful Projects valued at $49.95.

Collect your entry form from any stallholder when you make a purchase.
