Welcome to SENZ2015 - 

NZ's most Creative Expo!


Ellerslie Event Centre Auckland 
10th - 12th July
Open from 9.30am - 5pm Daily

The SENZ Expo brings together Scrapbookers and Cardmakers;  Mixed Media Artists;  Bookmakers and Decoupagers; Beaders and Jewellery makers; Stampers and Papercrafters; Knitters, Fibre Artists, Felters and Crocheters;  Needlecrafters and Quilters; get  ideas for parties; buy quality Kids Craft activities;  and fill up on some tasty treats from our sweet exhibits.

Buy supplies at 40+ Pop-up shops from some of NZ's best-loved craft supply businesses from all over NZ plus a couple from Australia. There are over 55 classes to  choose from (bookings open now so hurry book now!) so inspiration is guaranteed! 

There are competitions to enter and displays to see - including our Create for Gallipoli Exhibition/Competition and Pin Competition - get your entries prepared and be in to win lots of prizes. Plus you can see the History of SENZ Wall with photos and memorabilia from the last 14 SENZ events since it started in 2003. 

If you have always wanted to try one of these crafts then SENZ is your perfect opportunity to get ideas, see some demonstrations, do a make'ntake and learn the basics, and buy supplies to get you started, from NZ's top experts and best stores! Do a make'ntake at one of the stalls, like this one at Imagine If.

Afternoons are great for the kids to come along with you, they will love learning some new activities for those long winter weekends and you will love receiving their handmade cards and gifts that will become a lifelong pastime. 

There is a warning though - THESE CRAFTS ARE ADDICTIVE!
