Handmade market at Belconnen Arts Centre
Handmade markets are one of my favourite places to find unique gifts. Before I hit a handmade market, I make a rough list of forthcoming birthdays or occasions that I need to buy pressies for, such as baby showers, new babies, engagements/weddings, etc. You can even start thinking about Christmas presents and relieve the pressure of having to buy everything in November/December when you'd rather be at a Christmas party or on holidays.

Show & Tell Market is an exciting new Canberra design market that will be launched at Belconnen Arts Centre on Saturday 23 July 2016, 10am-4pm.

Organised by Poyo Studio, Show & Tell will focus on showcasing the work of local artists, designers and creatives in one space. Visitors can expect a fabulous selection of artwork, handcraft, fashion, accessories, jewellery, homewares, furniture, stationery, and more from over 20 stallholders.

ACTIVITIES:
Some special activities will also run in conjunction with the market, including:
1. Live art with JRB
JRB, a local designer, illustrator and artist will be making a special appearance to create an artwork in front of market visitors.

2. Colour in with Paul Summerfield
Canberra artist, Paul Summerfield's illustrations are mesmerising. Each time you look at one of Paul's whimsical illustrations you see another element you may not have noticed previously. They are a true delight for colouring-in addicts. One of Paul's colouring in books is up for grabs for the winner of the colouring in competition that will be run on the day.

REFRESHMENTS:
Looking at the creations of so many talented people can be tiring. Catch a break and grab refreshment in the form of coffee or a savoury snack from mobile coffee lounge, Kombean and delicious French crepes (sweet, savoury, dairy/gluten-free) from Le Petit Breton.
