Meet the Makers at the Makers Workshop

Makers' Studios

Depending on the day, there may be one or several makers working on site at the Makers’ Workshop, producing any number of interesting things, including papier mâché sculptures, hand woven baskets, glass beads, jewellery, hats, paintings, prints, wood work, violins, glass ware and of course paper.

In total there are eight studio spaces (with two of them looking suspiciously like converted shipping containers) located throughout Makers’ Workshop.

You are encouraged to meet the Makers and have a conversation about what they’re making or see their objects for sale in the gift shop. The gift shop sells products from over 50 Tasmanian artists, makers and suppliers as well as imported items.
