Original & fresh handmade at Berhampore School Knack Market

Original & fresh handmade at Berhampore School Knack Market this weekend


If you’d like to spend some time in the warmth this weekend and are curious to check out both established and up-and-coming artisans, call past the Midwinter Knack Market at Berhampore Primary School.

The quarterly event, which has been running for over 10 years, has gained a reputation as the best little school handcraft market in Wellington, and is on this Saturday.

The market offers a crafty assortment of fantastic, original, handmade items. From original art to jewellery, bespoke woven woollen masterpieces to creative knitting, funky kids’ gear and dressups to homewares and everything in between, there is something to suit every shopper’s taste and budget – all made right here in New Zealand. At this market Berhampore School is also excited to be selling honey harvested from the school’s very own beehives that the children help look after.

As well as regular stallholders, knack continues to attract newcomers who through word of mouth contact the organisers and want to participate. The mood of the market is relaxed and enthusiastic - if you’re a maker or lover of interesting and unusual things, this craft market is for you.

Enjoy the home baking and fresh Havana coffee on offer. This time round there will be a variety of hot soups, and made-to-order waffles available while you peruse the array of craft. There is plenty of free parking and eftpos is available.


When: Saturday, June 16, 9:30am-1:30pm.

Where: Berhampore School, Britomart St (off Adelaide Rd), Berhampore, Wellington

From tech innovations such as the blockchain, AI and VR, to increased collaboration between newsrooms and new community ownership models, there is plenty of reason for hope.

So, here are ten reasons to have hope for a better media in 2018 and beyond: More>>

 

Gordon Campbell: On The EU Trade Talks With NZ

In the very unlikely event that all will be smooth sailing in negotiating access to Europe for agricultural products from this part of the world, the EU/NZ negotiations could be wrapped up in about two years – which is relatively fast when it comes to these kind of deals.
