Riddells Creek Farmers' Market
The Riddells Creek Farmers Market (RCFM) is an accredited Farmers' Market operating from the Riddell Primary School from 9-1 on the 3rd Saturday of the month Jan-Nov and as a twilight market on the 2nd Friday each Dec.
Sustainability is a very important aspect of the market and we encourage you to bring your own shopping bags as RCFM is plastic bag free. If you forget your shopping bags reusable calico bags are available to purchase for only $4.

After some scrumptious sourdough? Or perhaps some succulent fresh meats? Vegetables that are so fresh they still have some soil clinging to them? Would you like to purchase food that has not travelled hundreds of kilometers? Then our fabulous stall-holders have you covered! We have a wide range of seasonal, fresh, local produce available.

Tugurium Macedon Open Garden
This wintery opening will give you the chance to see how the featuring foliage, texture and form of various plantings works harmoniously together with small pops of floral plumes to distract from the bare bones of the garden. During winter the featured species will include Helleborus, Brugmansia (Angels Trumpets), Acanthus, Cyclamen coum (Persian Violet), and various winter flowering bulbs. Please note (due to Covid-19 protocols): Pre-booking of tickets via TryBooking is preferred to enable entry at the specified hourly timeslots. Entry via payment at the gate will be accepted, but prior ticketed bookings will have precedence over pay-at-the-gate, and access will depend on available space in the garden. We ask that you adhere to the current social distancing protocols while visiting this garden, and stay home and get tested if you're unwell.

Lost Wax Silver Ring Workshop
Learn the art of carving and shaping wax to create your own unique ring. Jewellery made using this technique is carved from a piece of wax first and is then cast in sterling silver. No previous experience is necessary. Once you have the knowledge, making pieces from wax is something you can continue from home without the need to purchase lots of of expensive tools after the workshop. View the lost wax jewellery making tool kits you can buy from us. Working with wax is really relaxing, students often describe it as therapeutic. Many people who have completed this workshop have continued making jewellery from wax as a hobby. A number of people have started their own small businesses making and selling their own jewellery. You can also apply the skills you learn in this workshop to carve brooches, earrings and pendants. You receive making instructions, a list of tools and all the information you will need to get your pieces cast. For some inspiration on the types of pieces you can make using the lost wax technique, check out the Pod Jewellery Pinterest board on Lost Wax Making. Read the Lost Wax Silver Ring Workshop Frequently Asked Questions. PLEASE NOTE: THIS COURSE IS HELD OVER TWO HALF DAYS IN THE AFTERNOON. If you're unable to make the second half of the workshop on the date listed, get in touch to arrange joining the second half of the workshop at a later date. As this is a half day workshop, some people also choose to also attend the Silver Earring Workshop, which is held in the morning before this workshop. We work directly with sterling silver in the Silver Earring Making Workshop, so you'll get an understanding of working directly with metal in the morning and then learn a completely different technique of working with wax in the afternoon. On the first half day you work with wax to carve your ring. The wax rings are then taken to Melbourne to be cast in silver (included in the course cost) or gold or platinum (at an additional cost). We gather again for half a day one week later to finish off our gold and silver rings. This workshop is a pre-requisite for the Facetted Stone Setting in Wax Workshop. If you'd like to work directly with silver to make a ring band, rather than making a ring from wax that will be cast in silver, consider attending the one day Silver Ring Workshop. Workshop includes:
  • Afternoon tea
  • Tools and equipment
  • A sterling silver piece weighing up to 15 grams
  • Written instructions
  • List of suppliers
  • Tool list
If you would like to make a heavier ring, you can pay for the extra silver, which will be charged at cost price.

Meditation, Mindfulness & Chai

Experience the healing power of horses.

Once a month I will be offering group sessions in mindfulness and meditation accompanied by a lovely home-made hot chai. We will sit by the campfire, ground our energy, tune into our bodies, and immerse ourselves in horse wisdom, to help us navigate our modern lives.

You will love these sessions if you are curious about how healing with horses works. Perhaps you have been looking for new tools or resources to support yourself in your day to day life. Maybe just the idea of being out in nature in the presence of these magnificent sentient beings is attractive to you.

What a beautiful way to spend a Sunday afternoon - bring a friend, perhaps a teen, or come alone and meet some like-minded people. If you think anyone in your network may be interested I would love you to share this event. If the weather is cold, rug up. If it is raining we will postpone. $50 per person 1pm-3pm, tickets are transferable but non-refundable. The numbers are limited. Located, Woodend 1 hr North of Melbourne.
