The Handmade Show is a non-profit group run by a committee made up of stall-holders who volunteer their time to organise and run the market. The purpose of The Handmade Show is to promote and support local crafters, work-at-home-parents and small businesses. This market is a stepping stone for those starting out, providing assistance with tips, low cost stall fees, promotions and encouragement when needed.
Cafe Handmade is a fundraising cafe run by volunteers from the local parish who use money raised to support their community outreach cafe feeding up to 100 people in need on Thursday nights.
If that isn't enough to keep you busy, The Handmade Show's September market also introduces a brand new creative workshop, this time offering a painting class by Tracy Speight from Warratahstree. Choose to paint either a picture of pears from 10:30am-12:30pm, or if you prefer, choose the 1:00-3:00pm workshop to paint a red sunflower.
Tracey's painting workshops are aimed at complete beginners, as she takes you through the steps to paint a 40cm x 50cm canvas. All materials are provided, all you need to bring is an apron to protect your clothes. Workshops cost a reasonable price of $38 and can be booked here:
The Handmade Show runs from 10.30am to 3.30pm with free entry. If you miss the September market, the next Handmade Show will run on 18 October which will coincide with the market's birthday. Toward the latter end of the year, The Handmade Show will run on the 15 November, with the final market of the year to be held on the 13 December, just in time for Christmas.
