Artist In Residence Trail Tasmania Workshops

As an artist and maker I love workshops and I know I’m not alone. They are a great way to experiment, explore ideas, learn new skills and meet interesting people. For artists and artisans they are perfect for sharing their love for creating and contributing to their small creative business.
So I’m thrilled to be offering workshops as part of Artist in Residence Trail Tasmania (AIRTT). Here you can find out how to be part of our program, as a participant, workshop leader and/or venue host.
