We take a sneak peek at this weekend’s Artisan Fayre

Take a trip up the mountain this weekend and visit the 2021 Artisan Fayre.

Now celebrating its seventh year, the Artisan Fayre on Tamborine Mountain is a colourful and exciting artisan market, where all the available wares are made by local artisans and sold direct to the public.

This popular annual event, set in the lush and picturesque surrounds of Tamborine, has long been home to a unique melting pot of talented creatives and is the perfect one stop shop for your Christmas present shopping. Presents: sorted.

In addition to shopping to your heart’s content, you’ll also be able to support local music with a lineup of talented entertainment to treat your ears.

Hungry? Stop and nourish body and soul with some of the divine and delicious fare on offer.

The Junior Art Competition will run again this year, with the Artisan Fayre keen to encourage the next generation of artists and artisans to get away from their screens and get their hands dirty while creating an absolute masterpiece.

Young creatives can submit a unique piece of art such as a sculpture, pottery, Lego, painting, drawing, sketch, digital art, photos or whatever medium their heart desires, exploring the theme ‘My Fabulous World’. Pieces can be up to A3 in size and will be displayed during the event. Categories are 12 years and under, or 18 years and under, and pieces must be clearly labelled with the artist’s name, age, school and contact details.

And that’s not all! A range of incredible talks and workshops are on offer throughout the day, including:

Music in the healthcare setting by SJ, Energy release and Breathworks session with Heidi Rose, Mountain Elements & Fairy Music with Hayley Van Ravensway, Busking 4 Beginners with Haystack Mountain Hermits, Microphone Techniques for Beginners with The Inadequates, a Hare Krishna chanting session, belly dancing, badge, candle & flower garland creating, and ticketed event Smudge Bundle Experience.

Fun for the whole family, Artisan Fayre runs on Sunday 21st November from 9am until 3pm. More on the Facebook page.
