This would have been an interesting tour if it wasn't for the HORRIBLE woman giving the tour. She was rude, disrespectful and acted as if she was a GOD in the paper world. If you asked a question... more »
A must see when in Burnie. Take a paper making tour and see how paper is made. The Makers' Workshop has very helpful and friendly staff, especially Darren on the paper making tour; he's very knowledgeable and passionate about the paper making process and it shows; an asset to the place. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about the process. You also get the chance to make paper at the end, awesome experience.
Very cool and modern centre. Artisanal crafts, arts from the uni next door and paper making tours. Nifty souvenirs for all. Next door is the park where you can walk to a spectacular waterfall as well. Enjoy!
