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.

We learnt a lot in the allotted time, with The Team happy to run well over time to ensure all questions were answered and every single project was completed. Will be signing up to all craft lessons here as I doubt anyone else could possibly come close to the professionalism and expertise of the Team at The Old Auction House. I had a ball ladies, you rock!

Had a fantastic two days at the course. Rhain and Ettore were great instructors, there when needed but also allowed us to work at our own pace. The course was very well organised, a great way to meet new people and gave me the opportunity to try something new/creative. I highly recommend it.
