Hobby-X Joburg 2016

Hobby-X, South Africa's leading hobby and craft's expo, makes its return to the Ticketpro dome from 2-5 March 2017. Each year, a wide spectrum of materials, equipment, supplies and ideas are showcased to the general public, encouraging South Africans to take up a creative craft or hobby.

Hobby-X was initially launched in 1998 and has grown expontentially over the past nineteen years. It is now a highly popular event, attracting tens of thousands of visitors to each show. Professional hobbyists and those who are in search of an outlet come from all over South Africa in search of materials, supplies, equipment, ideas and techniques. The idea to bring about such a show was inspired by our busy, fast-paced lifestyles, and how for many of us, we don't grant ourselves that necessary 'me-time'. At Hobby-X, a range of activities are put on display, catering to all sorts of interests and preferences. Whether you're looking for an 'on-the-side' business idea or looking for fun stuff to do with the family, there is a little something for everyone at Hobby-X. 

Attendees are encouraged to indulge themselves with some chocolate making or explore their creative talents with glass-blowing. Alternatively, peruse the many stalls for gems, books, mosaics, metal clays, model cars, planes and trains, cooking, card making and so much more. Alternatively, if you're looking for some fun, stock up the house with some games, bungee trampolines and radio-controlled models. Those who are interested in learning more about their chosen craft can attend a range of workshops and demonstrations by experts in the field.

Come on along for three-days of fun and get inspired to take up a hobby!
