Creative Christmas


It’s that time of year again: the bells are ringing, the carols are carolling, and giant bedazzled trees pop up on every conceivable surface. And while it all might signal the peak of overcrowded parking lots and rushed and reckless consumerism, it’s also the perfect time to get outdoors and get social while supporting Australia’s many hardworking artists, crafters and makers. To find out what’s happening near you, check out our guide below for just some of the many festive markets and pop-ups happening across the country. If you are hosting a handmade Christmas event yourself – or know of something else in your area – then please let us know in the comments section below. Merry marketing! {Abbey Seymour pictured top}
