In the main street of Richmond, right next door to the Old Hobart Town Model Village is a delightful store that sells all types of products and gifts made out of Tasmanian timbers. It is called The Woodcraft Shop and is well worth a visit.
Our daughter, Tehillah, was especially taken with everything in the shop. She ended up buying a lovely timber candle holder made out of Tasmanian Sassafras.
The variety of gifts and different items was amazing along with the diversity of different timbers, each with their unique colours and patterns.
You can find such items as bottle stoppers, bowls, delightful wall clocks, ornaments or many shapes and sizes, including many types of fruit.
There are also gorgeous, large burl bowls and other lovely timber sculptures that could be used as a feature in any home.
Why not drop in on your next trip to Richmond, near Hobart, in Tasmania?
In our next blog post we will go to the famous and historic Richmond Bridge and imagine what it was like back in the 1800’s when the convicts were constructing this well-known structure.
Until then, Remember to Enjoy Life and Enjoy an Educational Tassie Holiday!
