Give your festive season a Frenchy chic twist at Alliance Francaise de Melbourne's annual French Christmas Market, which is set to take over the organisation's St Kilda mansion on December 9 and 10.
They've assembled a lineup to tempt Francophiles, gift hunters and market-lovers alike, showcasing a vibrant array of French homewares, jewellery, artisan goods, food, wine and even secondhand books. There'll be face-painting, balloon twisting and magic shows for the littlies, plus ample opportunity to flex your own creative muscles, with the likes of cocktail demonstrations, polymer clay workshops, and a French spirits and aperitifs masterclass.
If it all leaves you feeling extra inspired, you can even get a taste of Alliance Francaise's language lessons at one of the weekend's free trial classes. Entry to the market is free all weekend as well, with the fun running from 10am to 5pm on both days.
