Canberra's award winning Handmade Market is a quarterly event, which brings together talented artists, designers, stylists, craftspeople and gourmets from all over Australia to showcase their handmade designs. The Handmade Market is an indoor event to showcase over 240 Australian designer/makers. All products on sale are Australian made and designed. Shop at Handmade to support Australian designers and find something unique, well priced and where you can meet the maker. We have everything from fashion, furniture, sculpture, ceramics, children’s toys and clothing, jewellery and accessories and including our indoor gourmet food, wine and home wares hall. The market is held at EPIC, Exhibition Park in Canberra. You can drive to the venue, there is a lot of parking including coach & a very large disabled area. ATMs are located on site. There is public transport to the event. Entry to the market is FREE but please support our door greeters, Menslink, with a gold coin donation if you can. Each event supports a different charity. We are also supporting Share the Dignity at this event. Please bring along a pack of sanitary items and donate them to this great charity.
