Gourmet village puts on its artistic face

The village of Cygnet in southern Tasmania is best known for its gourmet cafes and fine local produce.

But Cygnet is also home to a large artistic community that will be putting its own wares on display for three days later this month. 

Local artists, craftsmen and women will throw open their doors from Sunday, March 27, to Tuesday, March 29, displaying an array of works ranging from weaving and dyeing to jewellery. Printmaking, woodwork and steel, ceramics, sculpture and photography will also be on display, along with artisan chocolates, pottery and home-made guitars. 

The three-day Handmade in Cygnet event sees artists and artisans offering visitors and locals the chance to visit their studios and to chat about their work practices and creative lives.

Cygnet and surrounds house a thriving and growing creative community with an increasing reputation for vibrant arts and crafts, food, wine and local growers. 

The Handmade in Cygnet website features an interactive map and online brochure - and artists are open from 10am-4pm on all three days.
