Craft Hatch

Craft Hatch showcases emerging makers and those new to the market scene, at 1000 Pound Bend.

Our popular emerging makers’ market – Craft Hatch – hits 1000 £ Bend this August for a bumper edition for our Craft Cubed Festival.  Visit over 30 craftspeople – some of whom are presenting their wares for the very first time.  Plus a hands-on selection of makers running workshops and demonstrations throughout the day.  We will be taking over upstairs and downstairs for a massive craft experience.  Get amongst some of the freshest, newest, youngest makers that Victoria has to offer and have a delicious coffee or meal at the cafe too!

Our special events on the day include:
