Stables Handmade Market Tasmania, The


Showcasing Tasmanian handmade, giving preference to makers in the Break O'Day Municipality, Tasmania.
In mid 2015, a discussion was begun by a number of local artists and artisans about setting up a Makers Co-op, with a view to finding premises from which to sell hand made items. This has now morphed into a steering committee of volunteers, under the umbrella of Greater Esk Tourism. The long term plan is for the steering committee to become an independent body.
The date of the inaugural Stables Handmade Market (2 Jan 2016) was suggested to take advantage of the many visitors who come to St Marys for the New Year Races, and the racing committee has also been very supportive of our new venture.
