One of the traditions of the BBX Royal Hobart Show is formerly known as the Creative Craft section. Far from being of casual interest and entertainment, this section has its origins in the need for the women of the Australian bush to be self-sufficient in the management of their residences and property.

Here you will see a huge variety of crafts including ceramics, beading, crochet, cross stitch, dolls, embroidery, glass, felting, knitting, lapidary, pottery, porcelain, spinning, sewing, textiles and cooking as well as new areas from calligraphy, carved and decorated eggs to pesto cookery and beading.
