Get Creative and Complete our Tufting Rug!
Try your hand at tufting and create a rug of art! Join artist Jess Bonnily from Troublemaker Melbourne in her quest to design a patchwork rug with the help of The Other Art Fair visitors. Pick up a tufting gun and contribute to this community art project, live at the Fair.
Like what you see? You can take home the finished piece by placing your bid at a silent auction, taking place on Monday 30 May. If yours is the winning bid, this tufting masterpiece is yours to keep. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to Beyond Blue, a charity dedicated to supporting people with their mental health.

Buy Your First NFT
The Other Art Fair are reframing NFTs by inviting visitors to buy their first NFT, in-person, by some of our Fair exhibitors. Plus, if you’re an artist looking to enter the NFT world with your work, then the Oshi team will be on hand to give you all the tips and insights.
It’s Competition Time! Get Solving Our Riddles to Win a Prize
Artist Kasia invites all Fair visitors to complete her scavenger hunt by discovering her 6 hidden clues around the fair. If you complete the hunt and find all the clues, one lucky winner will be selected every day to receive a print by the artist. Plus, everyone that has a go will be entered into a competition to win the ultimate prize, an NFT by the artist herself.
Enjoy Sculptural Work by Exhibitors
As you browse the Fair, you’ll come across some never before exhibited sculptures by Madi Whyte and Sarrita King. Look out for Madi’s brightly coloured paperclips and a metal sculpture by Sarrita reflecting the strength and longevity of the Australian Indigenous culture and the stories passed down over centuries.
