I am thrilled to announce that once again I have been selected to participate in the Tasmanian Craft Fair 2022.

I am located in Venue 5 again which is the Community Centre and is a lovely venue to work in. I really hope everyone who is interested in fibre and yarn making their way to this wonderful event will pop in and say hello!

I will have my new yarns base which is my 8 ply Supreme Sock yarn in a limited selection of colours and quantities available. For those like me who are hooked on 8 ply thick and squishy socks this yarn is just the best! Quick to knit up and you can get a pair done in no time at all.

About The Fair

The Tasmanian Craft Fair is the largest display, sale and working demonstration of all types of crafts in the Southern Hemisphere, held annually over 4 days on the November long weekend in the picturesque town of Deloraine in Northern Tasmania.


Each year, the Tasmanian Craft Fair hand picks feature artists from within Tasmania and abroad. This year we have selected Mae Finlayson. A Launceston based artist who makes soft sculpture, blending familiar and ordinary materials in unusual ways.

Mae Finlayson

Mae is a visual artist living in Launceston, Tasmania. She has a BA in Fine Art Textiles with first class Honours from Goldsmiths College, University of London and an MA in Constructed Textiles form the Royal College of Art, London. She makes soft sculpture with a hand made aesthetic that blends familiar and ordinary materials in unusual ways. Making work for gallery exhibitions as well as outdoor festivals, she has worked on many collaborative projects, solo projects and facilitated projects driven by audience participation.


This prestigious award is announced each year at the Fair. Together with a $10,000 Cash Prize made available by the Tasmanian Government through the Premier’s office, we now also produce a video to help them tell their story and shine a stronger spotlight on their art. Who will the winner be for 2022?
