Designed Objects Tasmania (DOT) is a community of designers, artists and other creative practitioners in the heart of North Hobart. DOT features a working studio and workshop spaces where new ideas are developed and knowledge is drawn from Tasmania’s rich craft heritage, while exploring the latest in materials and process technologies.

The DOT workshop facilities offer the ability to work across a diverse range of materials and processes including timber, metal, ceramics and glass.

Since 1986 we have existed as a community of designers and makers who seek to encourage exploration, entrepreneurship and excellence, and to offer support, resources and opportunities for members who run, or are seeking to establish, creative businesses and enterprises.
