A declaration of rampant self-promotion!!
The Gang is pleased to announce its upcoming annual event at the Hideout – Prisoners of the Crown holds an Open Studio Day on the Sunday closest to the anniversary of Ned’s hanging day (11 November 1880), which this year it falls on Sunday 10th November.
Anyone visiting the environs of the Bega Valley/Wyndham on the Far South Coast of NSW is welcome to swing by for a mooch around the workshop studios (contemporary jewellery and glass) and our in-house Courtroom gallery. And of course there’s the additional lure of booty with the Lucky Mugshot Prize. Drawn at the end of the day, this year’s winner will leg it with a pair of Ginger’s cast silver Crownie earrings.
For the vast majority of you who are entirely unfamiliar with our practice, you can check out previous Annual Open Studio Day chat here and here and here.
And there’s plenty more to explore at prisonersofthecrown.com
Doors swing open at 10.30 and slam shut at 3.30pm. Don’t stress too much if you miss it, there’s always next year(!)
Prisoners of the Crown is situated in the Old Police Station and Courthouse, in the village of Wyndham, a scenic 20 minute drive inland from Pambula, on the Far South Coast of NSW. We’re easy to find, just keep an eye out for Maurice de Ute…
