Description

The Old Auction House is an independently run multi-use arts precinct located in the regional Victorian town of Kyneton, just an hour north of Melbourne.  Housed in a historic weatherboard building, which served as the much loved Ferris auction rooms for over 80 years, the precinct opened in April 2017 and is home to a variety of artistic spaces.

The Old Auction House is currently home to a retail shop specialising in quality Australian handmade items, four working artist studios including local glass artists Leadlight By Ettore, a teaching space for visiting artists, and two gallery spaces with rotating exhibitions.

The silver beginners workshop was such a great experience for both my daughter and I and it was something we enjoyed doing together. Sarah was a great teacher, very helpful and made sure the class was run in a relaxed and comfortable environment. The studio was great! I would highly recommend learning at the Old Auction House, also the town of Kyneton was lovely. A experience all round.
