Tasmanian Craft Fair in November

Shared by |tags, , ,

Every year the pleasant rural town of Deloraine plays host to the Tasmanian Craft Fair, Australia's "largest working Craft Fair", taking place from November 2-5 this year.

Attracting over 30,000 visitors annually, the craft fair is an event for the whole family, with over 200 stalls in the four day event.

There's something that is bound to attract and draw all visitors to the fair, with quality crafts on sale ranging from hand blown glassware, oil and watercolour paintings, woodcarvings, leather and metal work, embroidery and pottery.

You can also try your hand at several activities including spinning, silk screen painting, blacksmithing, calligraphy, quilling, basket weaving, whip making, wrought iron work and candle wicking.

Entering its 32nd year, the festival has attracted "significant international interest", with French artist Anais Pitalier – who specialises in authentic reproductions of important historical artworks by important figures such as Leonardo Da Vinci – returning for another year.

During the fair she will demonstrate her talents and techniques, and will have some of her works of art for sale.

Plan your drive down to Deloraine for the weekend – located only 30 minutes west of Launceston – for the magnificent Tasmanian Craft Fair.
