Lost Trades Fair Bendigo 2020

From carving the cuttlefish to casting the design in sterling silver expect to be excited as you watch my demonstrations of cuttlefish casting at the Lost Trades Fair on the 7th and 8th March 2020 at Bendigo Racecourse.

This year the Lost Trades Fair is moving to Bendigo, so make the most of the March long weekend and start planning your visit to the Golden City of Victoria.

The Lost Trades Fair is such an action packed weekend, I hear only great things about the artisans from the visitors and receive the most wonderful compliments throughout the weekend. I see people coming back again and again to my demonstrations as they’re mesmerised by the whole experience from carving to casting.

You can expect to fill all your senses when you see my cuttlefish casting demonstrations there’s the heat from the gas torch, the smell of burning cuttlefish, the sight of the glistening molten silver as it’s poured into the cuttlefish mould, and the opportunity to touch the raw cast prior to me working on it to produce the unique designs of my handmade artisan jewellery. I’ll also have an exhibition of my recent work on display for sale.
