Hobby X Durban

Dream It. Design It. Make It.

South Africa’s favourite hobby and craft exhibition, and winner of the 2011 “Best Trade & Consumer Show Award”, will once again be enticing South Africans for the 20th time at its Durban Expo, encouraging locals to take up a creative craft or hobby. Hobby X has grown exponentially over the last 20 years and this highly popular event is expecting tens of thousands of visitors to its show in early October.

A visual feast of tactile and creativity, with a range of activities on display encouraging visitors to explore their creative side from glass blowing to string art or cooking. Guests can find themselves working with lasers, leather, jewellery and much more.

If you are looking for a new business idea on how to make money on the side, a hobby to give you the excuse you need for more “me time” or just some fun stuff to do with the family, Hobby X is the show to visit. Stock up on games, radio controlled models or trampolines or delve into the world of scrapbooking, metal stamping or any DIY project you could think of at this absolute paradise for creators.

Professional hobbyists will be wandering the aisles in search of creative innovation, but whether you are a newbie or a well-seasoned crafter, Hobby X is the country’s leading expo for all your future projects!
