In Partnership with Design Tasmania and Ten Days on the Island

The site of Spring Bay Mill is a landscape steeped in history and marked by industry. For millennia it has been the country of Tasmanian Aboriginal people. This contrasts starkly with its boom-and-bust history of whaling, quarrying and woodchipping.

Over three days last year, a group of Australia’s leading and emerging designer/makers immersed themselves in this landscape under the guidance of internationally renowned practitioners Trent Jansen, Peter Adams and Karina Clarke. Sites of rest and reflection were explored and responses honed into a series of orienteering experiences designed to reconnect us to this special place. You are invited to navigate this dynamic terrain and experience its diversity, its history and its surprises.
