Creating A Welcome was formed by a group of craftivists who wanted to create something positive and practical after the helplessness they felt over the mistreatment of asylum seekers. Now in its third year, the group's markets are a beautiful display of handicraft goods of all kinds. The best part is that 100 per cent of the profits are donated to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

The winter market will feature knitted clothes and doll clothes, cards, artwork, flower and fairy crowns, handmade chopping boards, buntings, brooches, and a number of other special handmade treasures.

If you can't make it to the market but still want to contribute in some way, the group also hosts regular Crafternoon workshops where you can learn new skills such as weaving, needle felting, and crocheting.
