Have A Go! Festival

Enjoy a fabulously creative weekend with the whole family at our annual festival of traditional skills and crafts.

Over the weekend of 20 + 21 February 2016, discover a whole range of traditional trades, skills and crafts, including blacksmithing, furniture making, wheelwrighting, weaving, millinery and more!

Meet the artisans who practise these trades and, as the name suggests, have a go for yourself!

Step Up + Have A Go at weaving, lacemaking, crochet, leatherplaiting, silk painting, paper crafting, and more.

Watch demonstrations in airbrush art, harnessing, wheelwrighting, rustic furniture, soap making, and the list goes on!

Children can have a go at making their own toys and have their face painted in the Kids Have A Go! area.

All this for just $10 per person per day! Families can purchase one day passes for only $30
(1 adult + up to 4 children or 2 adults + up to 3 children). Children under three are free!
Doors open from 9:30am-4pm.

Plus, you can enhance your Festival experience by booking into a Mini Workshop of up to 90 minutes in blacksmithing, copperfoiling, jewellery making, wood turning, felting, leathercraft, millinery and ocarina making. Mini Workshops are $20-$30 each, including admission to the Festival, and should be pre-booked to avoid disappointment. View the Have A Go! Festival map and listing online.
