Treasure Hunting

Whether you are present hunting for someone a little bit quirky or have a friend who is totally classy, this is the place to spot the perfect gift to delight them. Come to Sixth Street Handmade and peruse the beautiful array of unusual treasures at the Artist Markets. Unlike the regular static Gallery display, the talented artists will be on hand to chat to about their crafts while you shop.

Feeling Peckish?

The blokes are cooking up a storm with their artisan barbeques, gourmet pizzas and other exciting barbeque delights! Sixth Street Handmade are serving superb coffee, gourmet salads and all the sweet treats - slushies, ice creams, drinks and confectionery.

Learn a new craft

The Artist Market is running free Christmas decoration workshops. Ngarrindjeri weaving will be on display, African drums will tell your feet to dance and there will even be blacksmiths demonstrations.

There will be facepainting, live music and plenty of street stall atmosphere! Sixth Street Handmade will feature over 40 artists outside and plenty of art and craft to view in the fabulous Gallery Gift Shop.
