Get crafty at the pub
Northern Regards Artisan Market, held at Northcote Social Club, believes in the notion that sustainable items cannot be replicated or mass produced. With a focus on stallholders selling upcycled arts and crafts, it is true to say that most of the wares seen at Northern Regards Artisan Market will rarely be identical due to the nature of materials used.

Melbourne's first and only sustainable artisan market turns one this weekend, with extra special craft celebrations marked for the occasion. here will be a series of workshops offered at Northern Regards Artisan Market's 1st birthday, where you can join one of three classes embracing the market's strong values in upcycled craft:
