Stall Types and Fees

(fees are currently under review and will be adopted 23 June). All fees include GST.
 

Stall type Fees (for 10 days) Applications
Artisan

The Artisan stall category is for designers, makers and artists whose products are original, of high quality, well presented and made entirely in Australia.

Items sold at the stall must be bespoke and made by the artist. Artisan stalls provide an opportunity to ‘meet the maker’ so we are looking for makers who are willing to personally attend the festival. 

Each year we see a diverse range of artisans at the festival creating unique pieces for sale and often providing an entertainment experience for crowds as artworks are crafted on site.

Works created include leather belts, dog leads, upcycled jewellery made from household items along with art works on canvas, saw blade and Perspex created with brush, spray can and palette knife.
