By avoiding large gatherings, masking up, washing hands, social distancing and following the latest health advice, we will all get to the other side of this in the best shape possible.
We are indeed in this together. Every single Rotary volunteer, stall holder and visitor is impacted by Covid-19. And the millions of visitors’ parents, partners, children, grandparents, friends, work colleagues and even staff at their local coffee shop. We are all at risk and, like you, we will do our bit to keep each other safe.
Update: 1 August 2020:
Due to Covid-19 transmission rates and increasing mandatory public health measures in Victoria, the Camberwell Sunday Market remains closed.
FAQs: • Will the market be open this weekend? Sorry, no. • Will the market be open next weekend? No, sorry. • When will the market reopen? Unknown at this point, but we will reopen when safe to do so. • Can I book a stall? Sorry, no. The stall booking system will remain closed until a reopening date is determined. • How will I know when the market is reopening? Watch our social media and website for updates.
We know that for many people the Camberwell Market is an important part of Easter Sunday. In years gone past, we would receive messages from people returning home for Easter and just wanting to ‘make sure we’d be open.’
Often coming from overseas or interstate, the Market was part of their family Easter Sunday tradition: it meant being ‘home’.
So from our family to yours, we miss you too and, although we are all in locked down this year, we’re pretty sure next Easter will be a ripper.
Happy Easter and we hope to be seeing you in a few months time when it’s safe to meet again. Take care.
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.
