Creative Artisans Gallery


Creative Artisans Gallery is all original work with most of the items such as the jewellery, woodwork and silk, being 'one-off' designs.

The gallery aims to showcase original creations and artwork from local artists and artisans. It is owned and managed by local women who have lived and worked in the shire for many years.

Purchasing artwork from the gallery ensures an income for the artisans, and local suppliers and creates jobs within the community. There are so many very talented people who do not have the opportunity to have their work presented for sale on an ongoing basis - not just in exhibitions that may last from a couple of days to a month.
