The From Picture to Page and Beyond Sandown show is our pre-eminent show and is held on the third weekend in October, at the Sandown Raceway, Springvale. This central location is easy to access via car or train, and combines location for space which suits us down to the ground – with lots of free parking and professional catering, with something to suit everyone!
Our Sandown show traders come from around Australia, as well as Melbourne. Each of our traders are experts in their field and offer a unique range of mixed media art supplies, stamps and stamping materials and scrapbooking supplies, plus a few paper crafts that are hard to fine!
October is the time of year we start thinking about our Christmas cards and gift making. And the Sandown show is just what you need to get that creativity flowing! We delight in having a show just for paper crafters, scrapbookers and mixed media artists that allows our specialty traders to focus on the tools and techniques you need to see the latest products and watch demonstrations from our talented local crafters and artists.
The Sandown expo will continue to offer a range of free “Make and Takes” and mini classes (for a small fee) so you can create a small project with the latest techniques and products. It’s a fun way to learn about these new supplies and ask our traders about their use and application, as well as any other crafting questions you may have.
And of course, our venue offers free car parking and a kids crafting area, as well as professional catering when you are in need of refreshments!
