Visit Makers Workshop, located on the city’s waterfront, to purchase quality arts and crafts made by local artists. Dedicated to the preservation of regional history, culture, and art, this tourist attraction is situated inside an award-winning modern building that is part museum, part cultural center. You can stop by the site’s visitor center, staffed by volunteers ready to help you find your way around the city and beyond. The workshop’s gallery features regular exhibitions by Tasmania’s popular artists, and the gift shop sells a wide range of souvenirs.

    Really interesting art by local artists, very relaxing ambience. Cafe good. Some lovely pictures, glass work, jewellery, fabrics, paper making. Lovely views - well worth stopping in.  more »

    Mostly just a store for artists to sell their wares and a cafe. However, the paper making tour was very informative and reasonably priced, plus you get a hands on go at it. So much fun.  more »

  • My partner and I got a coffee and an ice chocolate. I was severely dissapointed in my Ice chocolate. If I wanted a glass of milk with the only chocolate in the drink decorating the side of the glass...I wouldn't pay that much for it. I'd just go home and pour myself a glass of milk. But in saying that my partners coffee was amazing! One of the best coffees in burnie. So if you want a good coffee go to makers. If you want a good ice chocolate go to Hudson's down the road.
  • Nice place to find a Tassie gift and to get tourist info.
  • Kids throughly enjoyed the paper making tour inside. Learnt alot and even dicided to purchase a paper making kit after the tour. Our tour guide was full of knowledge about all things paper. Would recomend if your in the area and if the weather is not great, as was our case, perfect indoor activity. Also has art work and various other stores.
  • Nothing wrong with this place but nothing really spectacular to say must see.
  • Great place that is well executed. Good cafe too
