Celebrating its 20th year, everyone’s favourite hobby and craft expo opens once again in Johannesburg for its first event of 2018. Hobby-X has grown exponentially into a highly popular event, attracting tens of thousands of visitors to each show around the whole of Africa. Some visitors even come as far as from USA and the UK!

It’s a visual, interactive, creative and entertaining feast with lots of creative goodies for the girls and new, entertaining options for the boys.

This Show encourages the public to take up a creative craft or hobby and come join in on 4 days of fun workshops with new innovative ideas. Professional hobbyists come from all over the continent in search of new ideas and techniques as well as equipment and supplies.

The Expo showcases a wide spectrum of materials, supplies, equipment, techniques and ideas catering to all sorts of creative interests or hobby preferences. The Show is “a visual, tactile and creative feast” with a range of products to admire from teddy bears, card making and paper crafts to metal stamping, woodwork, leatherwork, jewellery and laser cutting. Various workshops will be taking place every day between 9:30am and 17:30pm, including cooking, painting, art and so much more.
