Makers’ Workshop


The Makers’ Workshop, a cluster of perspex-skinned boxes sitting beside the beach (and highway) at the west end of town, was planned principally as a home for the community-based, non-profit Creative Paper Mill. Lifesize handmade paper sculptures are on display in the central atrium, as is an exhibit on the former industry, and you can have a go at papermaking by taking a tour of a workshop. A changing roster of artists – ceramicists, painters, jewellers, milliners – set up temporary workshops in one wing to answer questions and showcase their work, all of which is for sale. That of other Tasmanian artists is sold in an excellent giftshop.
