Design at Handmade


Handmade is the best place to find a unique piece of design. This weekend (28 & 29 July), the Budawang Building and Conference Centre at EPIC will be displaying the best of Australian design artisans from both the Canberra region and around the country. These designers have spent months putting collections together, selecting materials, handcrafting their products and planning their beautiful stalls so you can find the perfect treasure when you shop at the market. When you arrive, you will find a curated selection of beautiful stalls displaying homewares, fashion, accessories, children’s products, scented indulgences and gifts.

One of the best things about our designers is that they are ready to chat with you about their inspiration, materials, ethos and experience, so you can find out all about your unique find and take it away in the knowledge that you have supported an Australian artisan. From Winter fashion to jewellery of all imaginable styles, your Winter wardrobe will love the new purchases you make at the market. Your home will also be happy with the cosy textiles, glittering ceramics and glowing candles on offer. Ethical nutritious skincare will also be on display, with a potion for every skin type, all with ethical processes and a story behind them.

And when your bags are full, head to the Coorong Pavilion for a delicious drink, warming coffee or street food snack. Then you can feast your senses on our Gourmet Food Hall, and browse the produce in our Handmade Truffle Snaffle event, taking home luxury pantry items for your warming Winter meals. More about the food and drinks offerings in our next article. Keep reading, and make sure you include Handmade in your plans for this weekend – 10am until 4pm on Saturday and Sunday. Entry is free and parking is free. We’ll see you there!
