Discover art, crafts and homewares in Camberwell

Art, crafts and homewares have the power to instantly lift the décor of a room, as well as improve our wellness and sense of happiness.

It’s that beautiful print that reminds us of our trip to Italy; the porcelain figurine like the one Grandma had in her home; that bright yellow post-modern painting that looks like nothing in particular, but just seems to energise us every time we walk past.

No one really knows when they will stumble upon a piece of art or craft that will ‘speak’ to them, but with all the treasures hidden within the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market and the wide range of stores in the Camberwell shopping precinct, you’re sure to find something that will brighten your home and your life.

Discover the art of the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market

According to local legend, several visitors to the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market have gone looking for a little painting to brighten up the dark corner of their home, only to discover that charming little painting was actually a valuable work of art.

There was the family that used small change to purchase a painting from an unassuming homewares stall. It turned out to be a Tom Roberts and later sold for $25,000.

Then there was the man who picked up a double portrait by Janet Agnes Cumbrae Stewart for $50, only to discover it was worth about $6,000. He didn’t sell it though; he really liked the painting.

It’s a familiar sentiment. While you’re not guaranteed to find a masterpiece at Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market, you are sure to find a painting, sculpture, ceramic piece or vintage object you will fall in love with.

Professional and amateur artists themselves frequent the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market to find supplies for their own arts and crafts projects.

Wandering though the stalls, up-cycle artists, who turn pre-loved goods into statement pieces, mingle with artists with little hammers, on the lookout for unusual ceramics to turn into brilliant mosaics.

Find your creativity in Camberwell shopping precinct

Creating art and crafts is a wonderful pastime, which brings young and old together to turn brilliant imaginings into real life objects – and you’ll find all your creating needs at Riot Art & Craft.

Riot Art & Craft is an Aladdin’s cave of art supplies, ranging from paints and canvases, to modelling clay and wood, to lino cutting tools and print making tools.

Once you’ve completed your masterpiece, you’ll want to frame it, so wander down to Camberwell Framing Shop, where the professional framers will help you find the best frame for your piece.

Of course, art is within everything we surround ourselves with, from our vases and photo frames, to our table settings, to the tray into which we drop our keys when we walk through the door.

Camberwell shopping precinct has a host of homewares stores, packed with creative and beautiful objects for your home. Most Wanted Interiors offers a range of unique handcrafted furnishings, and Provincial Home Living has perfected the art of creating a home with stunning accessories for the house.

Discover tools and cameras in Camberwell

When it comes to tools and cameras, people can be divided into two groups: the vintage-loving types who intentionally seek out pre-loved treasures, and the gadget-loving types who are always on the lookout for the latest equipment.

No matter which camp you’re in – or if you move back and forwards between the two of them – you will find the tools and cameras you’re after in Camberwell.

Between the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market and the wider Camberwell shopping precinct, you’ll find specific tools for the garage, garden or a hobby, or that state-of-the-art camera to help you capture life’s magic moments.

Discover hidden treasures at Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market

At Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market, you’ll find collectors of rare cameras and photographic paraphernalia rubbing shoulders with photography students looking for discounted second-hand gear.

Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market is a great place to pick up a bargain. Professional photographers often sell cameras and accessories they consider to be outdated equipment, but which is fine for amateur photographers to give a second life.

Of course, there’s no such thing as outdated when it comes to tools. What some people see as old, others see as timeless classics.

Every weekend, keen gardeners and home renovators scour the market stalls for their favourite tools that are no longer being manufactured. Perhaps they’re in search of a new handle for their favourite saw, a specific drill bit, or a screwdriver that’s exactly the right size.

Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market is an Aladdin’s cave for those in search of old tools to break up for spare parts.

Artisans and fine craftsmen will also often find jewellery and wood cutting tools amongst the market’s treasures.
