Revving up for Craft Fair

BusinessJoanne EisemannComment



THE NEW Tasmanian Craft Fair Director, Lesley Dare, opens the throttle on this year’s Fair with new exhibitions that offer something for everyone.

From working displays involving master artisans in stone and wood carving from Cambodia, to rediscovering the story of Hydro wood. Plus there will be masterclasses from top Tasmanian fine timber artisans and displays of their magnificent crafts.

You can learn how to fly fish with top Tasmanian Fly Fishers, try a new craft or join in the conversation on creating a ‘Beyond Blue Farmer’. Along with parades of wearable art and costumes from the local dramatic society, you can watch glass blowers in action.

This year’s Craft Fair, from the 2nd to 5th November, offers a great opportunity for the entire family to experience Australia’s largest working Craft Fair, organised by the Rotary Club of Deloraine.
