Bev and I went to Burnie over the weekend. Bev wanted to see the Makers Workshop, so I took these images for Think Tasmania. It sure is an interesting place to visit. You can spend a lot of time browsing the exhibits and art stalls and talking with the artists. There are some great bargains to be had too. There is a large gift shop and cafe with a view of the Burnie coast. Plenty of parking and well located for a stroll on the beach, or walk into town. We enjoyed the visit.
Makers Workshop: Burnie Tasmania
We would totally agree with Dan and Bev’s assessment of the Makers Workshop in Burnie. It still looks and sounds exactly as we’d remember, despite twelve months passing since our last visit. Dan was lucky to see so many makers in action, though. The workshop section was strangely quiet (in comparison) during our previous trips to Burnie.
With your own visit to the Makers Workshop, you may like to incorporate an inspection of the Pulp Paper Trail as described and photographed by Carol Haberle. Not that you need to plan too much… we spent a day in Burnie with “nothing to do” and had a marvelous time. The City of Burnie has a number of tourist attractions, and you’ll find many of them have been featured via Think Tasmania before. And there’s no doubt many more stories still to be covered.
