What is the Tin Shed Artist Studios?

Tin Shed Artist Studios is:

  • A unique Visual Arts location in Launceston’s inner city area of Inveresk with shared studio spaces for more than a dozen resident artists and artisans working in diverse mediums.  
  • A combination of working studios and exhibition/retail space where visitors can purchase high quality items direct from the makers, arrange commissions, observe the working processes and talk with makers.
  • A large industrial tin shed with onsite parking which houses a combination of discrete working spaces for more than a dozen individual Resident Makers plus two large multipurpose spaces for Casual Users (a glazing, kiln and ceramics area plus a general workshop area).
  • A much needed outlet for clay purchasing and firing services in northern Tasmania.
  • A community of creative individuals who host visits by school and community groups and hold annual exhibitions both on and off site.
  • Part of an ‘arts hub’, situated in quiet one-way Russell St across the road from the Inveresk Railyards education and arts precinct.
  • The only privately owned, non government funded group artists’ studios in Tasmania, committed to providing “affordable supportive access to a fully equipped workspace for emerging and established artists” (owners Cath & Jilli).

  1. Please could I have email addresses for: GILLIAN RICHES and HELEN BOWER. I’d like to add them to the email list for The Australian Ceramics Triennale Tasmania 2019 (TACTT2019). Thanks


  2. Interested in returning to pottery – been 12 yrs or so – I do have a wheel and basic home studio but I’d be interested to any intermediate courses available and or ad hoc purchase of firing and glazing



    • Sorry we didn’t reply earlier but I reckon by now you would have learned about the ongoing Ceramics courses run by Gill Riches at the Tin Shed for most of the year. Our Facebook page advertises details or a phonecall to the Shed during business hours can give you the info about when the next course begins. Info abut purchasing clay or firing your work is also available by phoning the Shed during business hours.
