Following the success of the 2018 fair, Buda’s annual Traditional Arts Fair is coming to again Castlemaine on Sunday 24th November , showcasing traditional arts, cooking and gardening in as many and varied forms as possible, in the spirit of the Leviny daughters.
Hilda Leviny, the youngest of the Leviny women who lived at 42 Hunter St Castlemaine until she died in 1981, held a fundraising event every year at Buda Historic Home and Garden around this time and in her legacy we’re opening the doors of Buda for this exciting open day.
Patchwork, spinning, weaving, knitting, lacemaking, etching, quiltmaking, emboidery, fishing rods, pickling, metalwork, knitting pattern making, handmade body products, lacemakers, weaving, etching, and much more!
Craft beer, Handmade Icecream, Coffee, Buda special gourmet BBQ, Devonshire teas, Light lunches, music and children’s activities.
Whilst here, you will be able to take a “behind the scenes” tour of the house. These will have a focus on specialised fields and be with one of Buda’s special tour guides.
We will have more information in the coming months.
We aim to have a varied range of original, quality, handmade artwork and craft on show/sale. Preference is given to artists, crafts people and artisan food producers who are prepared to contribute to the ongoing promotion, development and success of the Castlemaine Traditional Arts Fair initiative. Preference is given to artists, crafts people and artisan food producers who include demonstrations of their making process; either ongoing as part of your stall or as a separate promoted event/activity at one of the designated stage areas.
