No doubt you've heard of, or been to, the Lost Trades Fair in Kyneton over the past 5-6 years.
Every long weekend in March over 120 artisans assemble in Kyneton for the two-day fair to demonstrate how trades used to be done. You can see everything from blacksmiths, stonemasons, pipe makers, chair and spoon makers, box brownie photographers, ceramicists, toy soldiers, guitar makers, penny farthings, the list goes on.
And the company that founded the fair, Rundell & Rundell, also have a creative workshop in town where you can make your very own three-legged stool or fully blown Windsor rocking chair. Workshops can be anywhere from 3 to 8 days and are a fantastic way to get back to how furniture used to be made.
If you sign up for a workshop and need accommodation, why not stay with us at luxury boutique Carrick accommodation in the heart of Kyneton, where most things are a short walk away.
The workshops are just one of the artistic offerings up here in the Macedon Ranges.
