Fruit Bowl Craft Jam is the place to be in the Hawke’s Bay this weekend. This colourful makers’ market, brought to you by Coco and Co, is back once again to continue its mission growing and harvesting the best of Hawke’s Bay craft.
This year Craft Jam explodes with more than 60 stalls, as well as the inaugural Jam Bake-Off (Sunday only), face painting, storytelling, Christmas carols, fire breathers, contortionists, trick ponies, guest appearances by celebrities, juggling Siamese twins and knitting walruses. They said it so it must be true!
The fun begins at 5pm this Saturday with a night market – a lovely way to get some Christmas shopping done with a glass of wine and some music – then on Sunday, it’s family time from 10am. As well as the quality craft on offer, there will be face painting and some stories for children, and of course the Jam Bake-Off.
Among the many talented vendors are some of our stalwart Felt sellers, including Fat Spatula, Coulter & Coulter, Wildflower, Alexandra Mackenzie, Sleep and her Sisters, Emma Makes, Silverworks and more.
galleryYou’ll find Jars of Joy and all manner of other Craft Jam fun happening in the wonderfully light and airy surrounds of the Opera House Plaza, Hastings, from 5pm to 9pm on Saturday 1 December and 10am to 2pm on Sunday 2 December.
