The Hub

Handmade, a festival of making

Join us in the Handmade Hub

Sat 30 & Sun 31 May, 8.30am – 5pm
Michael Fowler Centre, Free entry

Join us at the Handmade Hub for your share of creative ideas, good conversations and the opportunity to purchase from independent New Zealand creators.

Open to the public, the Handmade Hub includes a market, exhibition space, pop-up cafe as well as the Holland Road Knit Lounge and Nancys Finishing Space. The hub will be open all weekend with experts on hand to give you tips and guidance on your last finishing touches.

After a spot to wind down? The Hub provides a community space for all Handmade attendees – meet with your fellow makers for a cuppa and something to eat while you discover what else has been made throughout the day.

Handmade Night Market

Sat 30 May, 5.30pm – 8.30pm
Michael Fowler Centre, Free entry

Meet the makers behind some of our workshops and buy yourself some New Zealand made products from independent designers.

Immerse yourself in making with the Maker Exhibition and enjoy a few edible treats to keep you going while you shop away. We’ll see you there!
