Canberra Wool Expo at the Old Bus Depot Markets

Markets

18 May 2019 to 19 May 2019

Wool is timelessly popular. Just ask the many craftspeople from Canberra, the region and interstate who come to create, demonstrate and sell this most fabulous of fibres. That’s why this year the Celebration of Wool is over two big days!

It’s a great weekend to meet and speak with wool producers, craftspeople and artists, view hand spinning, learn about hand felting and watch weaving. For the first time ever, this year’s wool days will also feature Makers’ Workshops in crochet and knitting as well as some seriously good wool demonstrations by people who love to knit, felt, design and make homewares.

What might you find? If it can be created in wool, you may just find it at the markets. Browse and buy hand felted garments and accessories, designer knitwear, millinery, weavings, funky beanies and farm label knitwear. There’s also a vast array of woollen yarns, including hand spun and hand dyed yarns.
