“oops”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

drove out of the way to find it and it was padlocked up, don't know if it still exists, was excited about seeing local handiwork but it wasn't to be, if it has closed down then ads should be removed

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Saw this factory on Trip Advisor when I was leaving a review. I had no seen it in any other brochures or maps. Read the reviews and decided it was worth a look. Well I agree with all the other reviews, it is worth taking the time to look around this gallery. The works of the artists are unique, varied and stunning. I was impressed.

“Artfully wonderful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Don't blink or you'll miss it! Just a tin shed tucked in the industrial area of Broome is not exactly the kind of place where you would expect to discover a treasure trove but that's exactly what you will find. A co-op staffed by the artists themselves, it is filled with sculpture, three dimensional art works, furniture, ceramics, stonework and more. If you love Visual Arts, this is a must on your itinerary.

“Wonderful local artworks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful and varied contemporary artworks including amazing photographs, lanterns, Kimberley stone, jewellery, sculpture, paintings, and engraving on pearl shells by an indigenous artist. All made by local artists. Relaxing spot and interesting and definitely worth a visit while in Broome.
