Wellington's indie craft experience open 13 July

Greetings, craft fans!

CraftWerk Wellington's own indie craft experience is set for Thursday, July 13th. Sponsored by A LOW HUM, this shopping bonanza will take place from 5.30 pm to 8.30pm at The Paramount Theatre in Courtnay Place. Drink, dance, shop and be crafty!

Grab a drink from the bar and get in the mood (to shop!) with music performances by local bands and DJs while browsing locally hand created wares. Over three dozen crafters will showcase a wide variety of handmade goods, including knitwear, crochet skulls, silk-screened baby tees, handbags, chic and original jewellery, cupcakes, cards, zines, girly magnets, coasters, vamped up clothing, badges and more.

Take a break from shopping and check out performances by Peneloping, Captain Hammondhead, Snowfeilds and maybe possibly maybe Alex the kid. Or settle down on a sofa and play giant screen Atari while enjoying music spun by local DJs. Or participate in our Mix Tape swap while you try to spot the bunny.

And proof that Crafters are in it for the love not the money: courtesy of Juniper at 114 Riddiford Street Newtown a FREE GIFT for the first 50 shoppers!
