The Tinker, Tailor, Cook & Maker


Event Navigation

Been meaning to fix ‘that thing’, zhush your frock, sew on the button, pot-up the plant, pickle the excess cucumbers and generally throw a little sparkle on your life without spending a fortune? Well here’s your chance!

For three days, the City of Melbourne have invited Melbourne’s most creative, clever, and crafty folks to set up shop at the Town Hall and give you the opportunity to donate or breathe new life into your clothes, fix your gadgets, reimagine your things and learn a few neat tricks in the kitchen.

Part of the Sustainable Living Festival and presented by the City of Melbourne. Keep an eye on the What’s On website for program announcements, special events and how to book your spot.

Book a workshop session or visit our pop-up marketplace stallholders:
