3 Fun Workshops You Need To Try This Weekend at the Gathered Markets

Tick something off your “one day” list at the Gathered Market this weekend and then celebrate with a vino at the pop-up bar.

There’s something about walking around a market filled with gorgeous handmade gifts, artwork and homewares that makes you feel like “hell yeah – I could and SHOULD try that”. The problem is, you leave rearing and ready to go but by the time you’ve gotten home, a million other things have popped up and your great plans to take that class have slipped through the cracks, banished to the pesky “one day” list.
If this sounds like you, we’ve got good news.
Gathered SA, one of Adelaide’s premier markets, is hosting a range of fun, quirky workshops this weekend (August 5 & 6) with some of Adelaide’s most talented creatives. You can learn to make your own set of gorgeous dishwares, weave a trendy wall-hanging or nail the art of floral arrangements at the market. So once you’ve wandered around and are brimming with inspo, you can get stuck into a class then and there. No experience or “finding the time” necessary.
Once you’re done, you can wander over to the pop-up bar, grab a vino and give yourself a pat on the back for ticking something off that damn “one day” list.
Classes for the upcoming Gathered Market are booking up quick though so we’d recommend locking in your tickets now to avoid disappointment. Here’s what’s on offer:

Saturday 5 August Workshop

Join local potter Christy Pinkney from Seedleaf Designs​ for a Hand Building with Clay Workshop on Saturday 5th August at the Gathered Winter Market from 11am – 3.30pm

Your pieces will be glazed, fired and packaged, ready for collection from Christy’s St Peters pottery studio, approximately two weeks after. Alternatively, items can be posted out to you for a small fee.
