If you love shopping for and finding unique hand made gifts, particularly for Christmas presents, then claim the date of Sunday 1st December and pop it in your diary now. Gold Coast Potters will be holding their annual Art & Crafters Christmas Market Day from 9am – 2pm at the Potters & Sculptors Corner (Cnr Ashmore Rd & Carrara St, Benowa). In addition to a great range of handmade, locally produced gifts, there will be demonstrations by potters, sculptors, woodturners and many other craft groups for you to watch and chat to.
There's live music, food (sausage sizzle, pizza and incredible cakes to name but a few) and coffee too, so make a morning of it and get ahead with your Christmas shopping, with original creations that you will not find in the shops. The setting is the grounds of the Potters, the atmosphere relaxed and fun and the eats on offer give you an excuse to take some time out and sit down. Enjoy a relaxed Christmas shopping experience, browsing the craft tables and finding something a little different.
They say "a picture is worth a thousand words" so I'll let the images below, taken at the Potters Mothers Day Market earlier this year, tell their own story. Check out the variety offered by a number of clever crafters on the Gold Coast. It's a unique opportunity to discover the fruits of their labours at a single venue. Parking is available in the surrounding streets and on the corner just across the intersection.
