The inaugural Great Western Makers Market was to take place on Saturday, 2 May at the Western Sydney University's Campbelltown campus, from 9am to 3pm, however has been postponed until further notice due to the current COVID-19 outbreak. As soon as we're able to reschedule we'll announce the alternative date here, as well as on Facebook and Instagram.
The market will celebrate the diverse creative skills of artists and makers from Sydney's greater western region with over 70 stallholders expected to attend.
Held in the stunning surrounds of the campus Amphitheatre, the market will also feature food stalls and live music, to make for a festive day out.
Filled with a huge range of high-quality handmade goods, and held just one week before Mother's Day, the Great Western Makers Market is the perfect place to find that special gift.
We are also inviting art clubs and education groups to come and help people work towards their creative goals.
Organised to coincide with the biennial Western Sydney Sculpture Award and Exhibition, held on the campus grounds, the market will showcase of the beauty and originality of the handmade, while helping to foster connections between the university, artists and the local community.
If you're a local who draws, paints, knits, sculpts, sews, or creates with silver, clay, wood or metals, we'd love you to exhibit your work at the Great Western Makers Market. Once an alternative date has been determined, we will reopen our application form for stallholders.
