A family has indulged their creative side and started a business to share their love for art.
Cynthia Tipple has had a brush in her hand since she could walk.
“My mother has a long history in ceramics and we have business Studio Australia Ceramics which has been running for 20 years, but now we have started Artisan Shed,” she said.
From making soaps to water colour painting, Mrs Tippler said they have so much knowledge to share.
“There is a real revival in arts and crafts and even with the go slow and recycle,” she said.
“I thought let’s open the doors and share what we know so these skills don’t get lost.
“There is a whole generation of people that haven’t done anything like ceramics.”
Artisan Shed has only been open for six weeks, but they have had a promising response so far.
“People are really starting to look for experiences,” she said. “People just come for a three-hour workshop and have the experience and it’s time out from their schedules.”
Mrs Tippler said another popular trend they are tapping into is upscaling used furniture, rather than just throwing it away.
