From the heart of the maker
There is nothing nicer than giving the gift of something homemade. It's a gift from the heart and has the touch of the maker, even if not yourself.

As part of On The Hill Festival, Panton Hill Living and Learning will be holding a Makers Market at 18 Bishops Road, Panton Hill on Sunday 28th October 2018. The Market will commence at 11.00am and conclude at 4.00pm. These markets are for lovers of all things homemade; with unique items such as jewellery, toys, pottery, arts, homewares, treats and more. Something for yourself or purchase some early Christmas gifts for the family. The best thing about homemade markets is that the items are unique and heaps of the same thing is not found, so when purchasing you have something you can use or wear with pride. There will also be activities for the children on the day. The event is plastic free, so bring along your own bag or take one of the event organiser's calico bags.
Panton Hill is a small town 32 kilometres northeast of Melbourne in the Shire of Nillumbik. The town was originally named Kingstown in the mid-1850s during the gold rush but changed its name to Panton Hill after Joseph Anderson Panton who was the Magistrate at Heidelberg, who had spent much of his time mapping the Yarra Valley.
