We now have 242 exhibitors booked of which 70% are Tasmanian and of those there will be more than 60 exhibitors demonstrating their craft with a further 40 providing videos or samples from different stages of the production
It is the one time when visitors can get to talk to so many artists/artists who actually create their own products, which won’t be seen in the shops
It’s also a fantastic time to get Christmas gifts that will stand out from the usual presents
Exhibitors vary from an 18yo who makes collectible knives out of recycled Tasmanian timber and recycled bandsaw blades TO a 90yo who we believe is the last person tanning hides in Tasmania (Myles Kirkman & Bryan Pearce)
Feature artist is a Hobart-based artist who works with silk paintings and oil paintings. (Esther Shohet) She plans on having two half-completed paintings that members of the general public will be able to add to.
