West Wind Collector Market, Sat 15th & Sun 16th December 2018 10am-5pm

West Wind Collector is a market which focuses on handmade, local & independently produced wares. Here you will find ceramics, illustration, plants, jewellery, homewares and fashion. There will be originals, samples and one-off wares. With each artist running their own table you can walk right up to the makers and ask them about their work yourself! Right around the corner is the delicious, cheap food that Abbotsford Convent is known for as well as luscious green lawns to relax on while you soak up the sun. A perfect place to while away an afternoon supporting local, independent artists.
