The Art of Pinstriping will support the revival of Pinstriping as a ‘lost trade’, once practiced widely in our region at the Castlemaine Foundry. This project will help preserve this artform in a community where it was once prolific, with up to 10 local VCAL Students at Castlemaine Secondary College directly benefiting through a program of workshops to acquire knowledge and skills to practice this heritage artform. They will receive a practical training course to teach the basics of pinstriping which can be applied to coaches, motor vehicles, motor cycles, bicycles and heavy equipment. Pinstriping is now recognised as a stand-alone artform, and is an integral element of the evolving tradition of hot rodding.
