The Tasmanian Craft Fair selects an emerging artist each year that we feel has the potential to have a successful career in their chosen art or craft.
In 2016 we have selected the youngest ever emerging artist in 18 year old Myles Kirkman.
From Deloraine, Myles is still a school student but has shown his great skill in making a range of knives.
Practical as they are useful, they look and feel good. Myles makes these collectible knives out of Tasmanian timber and recycled, high carbon, metal-cutting bandsaw blades.
This means that not only do they keep their edge extremely well, but they look great.
Myles will be in the Community Complex building this Craft Fair, so come and see him.
