It’s back! Buda brings the Traditional Arts Fair to Castlemaine on Sunday November 20th from 10am till 4pm. Buda will showcase traditional arts, cooking and gardening in as many and varied forms as possible, in the spirit of the Leviny daughters. Embroidery, book binding, tinsmithing, weaving, knitting, knife making, lacemaking, felting, painting, metalwork, jewellery, cooking, handmade body products, basket weaving and much more! Handcrafted icecream, coffee, Buda special gourmet BBQ, Devonshire teas, light lunches, Shedshaker bar, music and children’s activities will all make for a fantastic day. Three stages will be running with free demonstrations all day, along with individual demonstrations on each stall and a special guest artist in residence.
New this year is Gold Panning! Adults and kids can come and learn to pan for gold from experts from Miner’s Den Bendigo. The panning dirt is guaranteed to have gold in it. Will you find it?
Honouring our European connection, the Belly Dance Goddess troupe will be showcasing gypsy tribal dance at various times during the day. Don’t miss their colourful, fun dance display.
The Fair will be hosting a make and take table on the day. Sit down with Andrea and learn to make some very funky jewellery, or Christmas decorations. There are a few sessions to choose from and you will take home a completed item. Book at the booking table on the day.
There are also magnificent items up for raffle including a basket of artist made goodies, a Catherine Pilgrim lithograph and a basket of famous Buda produce. To top it all off, Buda’s tour guides will be conducting guided tours at a discounted price for one day only.
You can buy tickets on the gate but to help us out in advance, you can buy your tickets online.
$5 adults. Kids are free!
