Perfect weekend: Huon Valley art trail, November 5–7
If you're in Tasmania this could be your perfect weekend. From Friday through to Sunday you have the opportunity visit a trove of talented artists and makers scattered throughout the idyllic Huon Valley in Tasmania.
Grab a map (and a Kingston black cider) from Willie Smith’s Apple Shed or The Hub in Huonville and then be on your way. The Tamoh 2021 Art and Away Trail takes in twenty artists’ studios, workshops and galleries, including that of David Rauenbush, aka @phoenixcreationstas and runs over three days, November 5–7, 10am – 4pm daily.
