i always come here when in Launceston. I dont know whether it is the design skills or the technical skills or just the plain artistry of the items on display in both the gallery and the shop but my creative juices simply cant stop flowing everytime I come here. I love it and always tell people to come here.

A wonderful place to see amazing designs using local materials. Worth a visit and as it is located next to City Park you can stroll there afterwards.

We found this to be an inspiring place for craft. The wood products are second to none, and although the producers goods can be found elsewhere on the island, we found the pricing competitive. There is also a very attractive range of jewellery and clothes. The larger pieces of furniture were wonderful.

Lots of wonderful designs of timber and other local Tasmanian products, very inventive and enjoyable to stroll through. The centre is well designed and staff knowledgeable and welcoming. Recommend a visit when in Launceston, esp if its a rainy day. Gifts, souvenirs and some pieces available for purchase.

The design centre is a must for anyone who appreciates unique, stunningly designed furniture. There are two parts to it. There is the shop area where you can wander around and look at all sorts of creations from huon pine rolling pins and salad servers to beautiful one off pieces of furniture. If my bank account allowed, I would have... More
