Situated in a timber building from the 1880’s, at 52-56 Mollison St, Kyneton, Victoria, The Old Auction House underwent renovations in late 2016-2017 with stage one – the Handmade Shop and Studio 1 – opened on April 22nd 2017 and Stage Two, including 2 galleries and Studios 2, 3 and 4 opened in May 2017.
The Handmade Gift Shop is a curated space which houses 90+ artists and designers from the local area and further abroad, with an ever adapting stock of quality handmade gifts for all the family.
Working studios spaces are home to a variety of artists, and visitors will have the opportunity to talk to the artists and watch them work. Studio 1, the premier studio, is home to glass artists Leadlight By Ettore, who have been teaching and creating in the Macedon Ranges for over 30 years. The studio specialises in teaching leadlighting, fused and slumped glass, and mosaics as well as creating new commissions and repairs. Studio 4, Kyneton Craftery, specialises in craft workshops and events for all ages – running social crafting sessions, a variety of crafty activities during the school holidays, corporate events, private functions, and parties. The Kyneton Craftery workshop is full to the brim with a collection supplies, tools, and inspiration to get everyone crafting.
