Hello, my name is Sasha Smith I am the textile/fibre artist behind Bruny Island Avalon Art.
I have grown up surrounded by craft as it has always been one of my favorite hobbies. I studied Science at high school but also did Clothing Textiles which babbled my teachers! On leaving high school I trained in a NZ Medical Laboratory in Biochemistry but soon got bored working with blood. Later on I studied Horticulture my other love.
After having two beautiful girls I realised I needed a sea change out of the city so I dreamed up this idea of starting my own business. I figured I had many skills up my sleeve so decided to go with my ultimate love of making beautiful craft.
I opened Avalon Art on Bruny Island Tasmania set in an historic 110yr old homestead. It was built as the original Bruny Island School and Post Office so it is full of character.
Now I'm avidly making all my favorite things to sell in my shop frontage 3761 Main rd, Alonnah, Bruny Island, Tasmania and in the future I endeavour to sell online too.
So when your visiting the spectacular Bruny Island and after you've seen all the wonderful views please do pop in for a look at what I've been making along with other local produce
