WEAVING: Jenny Turner started weaving in the mid-1970s at the Tasmanian Government Schoheron Textile Center. Using traditional Japanese weaving techniques, she produces large-scale weavings as hangings. In addition, she weaves elegant scarves and shawls using Tasmanian wool and natural dyes that reflect her observations of Tasmania's natural environment. Her work can be purchased through Handmark Gallery at Salamanca Place
JEWELLER: Artist jeweller Phill Mason turned down a jewellery apprenticeship at age fifteen to pursue other interests, but was drawn back to the craft in his thirties. Today, it's the "life experience" he gained that ignites the spark in his design. Mason is adamant that if he had accepted the apprenticeship at a young age, he might never have become the master diamond setter he is today. Having received 20 awards for his cutting edge, yet classically inspired pieces, Mason's studio is now a popular stop for travelers wandering through Salamanca
