Calling all arts and crafts lovers to the deep south of Tasmania

Calling all lovers of arts and crafts to the Huon Valley in November. 

The Huon Valley, for those not in the know, is the southernmost municipality in Australia. In the far south of Tasmania. Next stop Antarctica. Literally, 

The Valley will host the artists and makers of the Huon Art and Away Trail from November 5-7 with 20 potters, artists, weavers, carvers, glass artists and spoon designers showing off their unique creations.

Pick up a brochure, or a red Art & Away sign will be on the streets to direct you to each venue.

Whether a single room in the home, a repurposed building or purpose built, all these studios are dedicated workspaces used throughout the year by the artists. 

Visitors can see where and how they work, what materials they use, perhaps works in progress or even the artist working. 

Most of all it is an opportunity to ask questions, chat and perhaps support these artists by purchasing work directly from their studios. Whatever you choose to do you will gain a unique insight into that artist and perhaps the story behind the piece that you take home.

Plan your visit around the Studio Trail by selecting information about the participants and their work by checking out the website. 

You can also check out some outstanding wine producers and cider maker along the trail. 

Or why not stay over night, make a dinner reservation, and add some of the other fabulous Huon attractions to your visit? 

The Huon Valley Writers Festival is on over the same three days so that might also pique your attention.
