The Centre houses a permanent Design Collection, regarded as one of the world’s best assemblages of contemporary woodwork, having won acclaim in the United States, Europe and China.
The Centre is also home to Tasmania’s largest shop featuring Tasmanian craft and design, from hand made homewares and jewellery to bespoke furniture.
