Kickstart the Festive Season as Rivermakers Presents Christmas at HQ

Get ready for a holly, jolly Christmas this December at the Rivermakers Heritage Quarter as the lifestyle hub lights up with festive cheer, beer and entertainment for the entire family to enjoy.

On 3 December 2022, the Rivermakers HQ will be brimming with Christmas magic and loads of fun and entertainment for the whole family, and of course, overflowing beer. Makers and creators Revel Brewing, and Low n Slow will be joining the family fun plus pop-up bars from Margarita Margarita and Hohly Water for the parents.

Bavay Distillery will likewise pour in some Christmas cheer with festive cocktails, distillery tours, a live mural painting and gift packs for purchase from their very own “ginmas tree”.

Meanwhile, Christmas carols will fill the air to keep the festive spirit going as eventgoers browse through all the gift items on offer at the Christmas Market stalls onsite.

And Santa Claus will be dropping by too to join in the fun from 2 pm to 4 pm, so be ready to get a free photo with him.

Those who want to try pottery making can participate in a two-hour Pottery Wheel Workshop at the site, hosted by Mas & Miek. This fun and relaxed workshop welcomes all levels, and is perfect for those who have never tried the pottery wheel and would like to give it a go.

You can try your hand at the wheel after a brief demonstration by one of the organiser’s experienced throwing teachers. If you make something you like, they will fire and glaze it for you ready to collect a few weeks later; there is a limit of one piece per person. 

The studio will then glaze your work in your colour of choice and fire your bowl for you, ready for you to collect a few weeks later. The price to book a spot is $110 – all-inclusive of clay, materials, glaze & firing.

They do not offer cash refunds on any classes, courses or workshops in the studio, so participants are advised to choose carefully.


Save the date! Christmas at HQ happens on 3 December 2022 from 2 pm until late at 82 Colmslie Rd, Murarrie.
