Makers’ Workshop

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Makers’ Workshop celebrates Burnie’s makers, innovators and artists. Opened in 2009, this contemporary structure is a “must see” when visiting Burnie.
Well known for supporting local artisans, studios are provided for a variety of local craftspeople and artists who demonstrate their skills and techniques on-site.
Explore the extensive gift shop with a focus on Tasmanian products.
The Cheese Shop offers exquisite cheeses for tastings and purchase, manufactured at Burnie’s state of the art speciality facility operated by Lion.
Great coffee and food is an essential part of any Tasmanian experience and the Makers’ Workshop licensed cafe provides fresh simple fare in beautiful surrounds.
The story of Burnie’s deep connection with paper is told here with Creative Paper, where visitors are invited to see paper being made by hand, then try it for themselves.
The helpful Burnie Visitor Information Centre staff and volunteers can assist you with bookings for accommodation and experiences, maps and directional support, and that in-depth local knowledge that makes your travels easier.
A fascinating range of exhibitions can be viewed in the contemporary gallery space.
Significant objects from the Burnie Regional Museum are on display throughout the building as visual ‘icons’ telling stories of Burnie.
