Tasmanian Craft


Tasmanian Craft has an extensive selection of handmade or Tasmanian designed products listed, many pieces you won't find elsewhere. The main focus is on products created from our stunning Tasmanian timbers, including but not limited to salvaged huon pine & blackheart sassafras.  However you will be amazed at how much more is in my actual retail shop Makers on Church St, Geeveston  - open since 2012.  Geeveston is part of the stunning Huon Valley, an approximate 45 minute drive south of Hobart.
After being closed for some months due to COVID-19 we have now re-opened with limited hours five days a week until the borders re-open, then we hope to be open everyday again.
We thought 2019 was tough after bush fires & the flow on effects of losing our main tourist attraction Tahune AirWalk to one large fire, however 2020 will be much more challenging for us all.

Fortunately I already had this website, which hopefully will continue to grow and alleviate some of the economic strain being felt not only by me but my Tasmanian small business suppliers & crafters.
Thank you to those that prefer to shop small & free gift wrapping is available on request.

PLEASE NOTE - PICK UP FROM STORE IS AVAILABLE ON OPEN DAYS

Huon Pine

Huon pine or Lagarostrobos franklinii is Australia’s oldest living tree, extremely slow growing with a fine grain and close-spaced growth rings unique to Tasmania. 

Highly prized by wood craftsmen due to its ease of use Huon pine is initially a pale straw colour but mellows to a really deep golden lustre over time with a strong aromatic perfume. Woodworkers love it especially when they find a highly figured or speckled piece known as Bird's eye. Traditionally and to this day still used in wooden boat building due to its natural oils that resist rotting. 

There are accessible sites to see Huon pines growing either on the West Coast or the Tahune Forest Reserve near Geeveston. Most Huon pine now used is salvaged from an area near Strahan on the West Coast of Tasmania.
