Craft 2.0 is a cult Wellington craft fair for style junkies, craft enthusiasts and fans of handmade.

Over 4 years Craft2.0 has become synonymous with high quality, diverse products proudly claiming ‘New Zealand Made’ or even better, ‘Wellington made’.

You may discover that your neighbour moonlights as an artist, a colleague is a closet knitter and the kid next door’s Dad is rather resourceful in the design department.

Take the opportunity to speak directly with the clever clogs behind the craft and know that you are in possession of something truly unique. All vendors are carefully hand picked to avoid what has become known over the years as “Nana crafts”. Whilst some crafters may have a sneaky reference or two to a beloved grandmother, this certainly isn’t crocheted air freshener covers.

Many of our crafters use recycled/vintage materials, like cast-off aluminium tabs, e-waste, old board games, cutlery and other quirky objects that often end up at the rubbish dump - it’s all about being resourceful. We love finding new and unusual ways to reuse discarded items, and we hope we’ll inspire you to do the same.

For spot prizes, the ever-loved kids’ craft table and a bunch of brand new crafters and surprise treats for shoppers, Craft2.0 promises to be a great day out for all.
