Tasmanian Craft Fair
The annual Tasmanian Craft Fair is Australia's largest working craft fair. The fair attracts over 30,000 visitors from interstate and overseas annually. The event is held in the picturesque township of Deloraine, just a 30-minute drive west of Launceston.
The quality crafts which can be found on show and for sale over the four days are as diverse as woodcarvings, hand blown glassware, leather and metal work, pottery, lead lighting, embroidery, silver and goldsmiths, oil paintings and water-colours.
Additional attractions include calligraphy, quilling, tatting, egg carving, spinning, silk screen painting, kite and kaleidoscope making, blacksmithing, wrought iron work, basket weaving, whip making and candle wicking.
All stalls and working exhibits are under cover in various Deloraine venues and over the four days, visitors have a chance to explore the many venues throughout the town. A free shuttle bus travels from venue to venue.
