Tim Shaw is investigating the feasibility of setting up an art, craft and design centre in the Adelaide Hills. It would be centrally located in a popular tourist destination, and would incorporate a retail/gallery area and individual studio spaces. It would be open to the public and offer the opportunity for direct sales and exhibiting of work. He would be offering a variety of studio sizes suitable for artists, creatives, designers and craft practitioners. The centre would also include a dedicated teaching space that would be available for hire to studio tenants.
