Craft Hatch

Our 2015 market series ends with a bang at Queen Victoria Market with a bumper day of craft stalls from members across all genres, as well as demonstrations, food and activities.  Set for Sunday 13 December 2015, this is a curated market featuring hand-picked makers representing crafts from across the state with a Christmas and gift-giving bent.

There will be a dedicated Craft Hatch area focusing on emerging makers too!  Read about our Craft Hatch program below.
