Hello Makers and Mothers of Makers…
I am currently enjoying the school holidays with our three sons and preparing for a busy year ahead in Our Little Caravan: the collective store. Every week there is something new, it’s a really dynamic place full of inspiration and gorgeous things.
Please come and visit us when we re-open this coming Wednesday 18th January at 7am for coffee and a variety of low cost, simple DIY craft during our Drop in and Craft Sessions. DON”T FORGET to bring in any knitting or crocheting that you have for our yarnbombing project! (The street pole we’re decorating has a diametre of 20cm.)
Please see below for January Drop in and Craft Sessions available to avoid disappointment.
There are 6 Crafternoon Workshops available for booking too. See below for details.
We welcome adults to join in with our Crafternoon Workshops while they are on holidays(not including terrarium workshop)
Our Little Caravan Artisan markets are held at Our Little Caravan, 39 Westerfield Drive, NottingHill and flow onto the street. We also partner with the Notting Hill Neighbourhood house next door.
We have a limited number of indoor stalls and the rest are outdoors and sheltered.
Indoor space is $35 for a trestle table space (you can hire a table for an additional $10 payable at time of booking)
Outdoor spaces are slightly larger. As we are along the shopfronts they are not 3x3m spaces – they are one to two trestle tables in size.
Applications for 2017:
Craft Drop In Sessions:

These include our popular glass tiled pendants, fabric covered buttons, fun with washi tape, DIY scrabble tile frames and lots more. Morning or afternoon tea can be enjoyed at Inchmeal Cafe.
