Craft Party is Etsy’s annual celebration of all things creative, and we can’t wait to see how you craft in 2016!

On Friday 17 to Sunday 19th June, we’re inviting craft enthusiasts from around the globe to come together and bask in the shared love of making. Whether you prefer to party with paper and get down with glitter, or if jam is more your jam and you can craft a mean cupcake. Are you looking to have a fun time with florals? Or do you have the know-how when it comes to nail art? Craft can take many forms and 2016 is all about letting your creative side shine.

Back for its seventh year, Craft Party is an amazing opportunity to connect with fellow crafters, either in your local community, or from across the globe by tagging your creations with #etsycraftparty.


If this sounds like your kind of party, why not gather some creative pals and have a Craft Party of your own? To help get the party started down under, we are offering a $100 Etsy voucher to the first 30 Craft Parties in Australia and New Zealand to get 30 RSVP’s. To be eligible, all you need to do is head to Eventbrite, register your party and start inviting your friends! (Just make sure you’ve got the guest list set to public so we can award you your voucher. Please note this is only available for sellers in Australia & New Zealand. Parties that are set to private will not be eligible for the voucher.)

If you’re in Sydney or Melbourne, General Assembly is giving you the chance to host your dream Craft Party in their nifty campus! To find out more about the Sydney shindig head here, or if you’re more Melbourne inclined head here.

If hosting isn’t quite your jam, there are some ace parties already in the making! Etsy Adelaide is hosting a DIY notepad and book making extravaganza at Brick + Mortar Creative Hub, you can register for either a Friday night or Saturday session here. Meanwhile in Hobart, whip out those embroidery needles and join the Hobart Handcrafted team for a mini Embroidery session (details TBA, but join the team to be sure to stay in the loop). Back on the mainland, there ain’t no party like a Perth Craft Party, and the Western Australian Street Team will be knocking your handcrafted socks off, stay tuned here for all the finer details.


Back on the east coast the BrisStyle team is teaming up with the State Library for their Craft Party, and will have a handmade market to boot (for more info head here). Alternatively for those in the sunshine state, why not join Makers & Designers crafting with some of their favourite Etsy sellers at Work-Shop? (Or even both? #craftalldayeveryday). Sydney-siders are also being treated to some Work-Shop magic, hosted by the Sydney Made Team; expect sparkles, messy hands and inspiration a-go-go. Meanwhile in Canberra, the CanEtsy team is getting crafty with felt buntings and banners, be sure to register & get along for fun times, food and drinks. And last but so far from least, the Melbourne Etsy Team will be giving you the chance to mingle with some like minded creative folk and express yourself through art and craft. Intrigued? You should be. Stay tuned here for more details.

Or maybe just kick back and get busy with a quiet night in, #netflixandknitting anyone?
