Emporium | Gift Shop 

We feature the work of local artists, craft workers and designers who salvage, reuse and upcycle materials

Robert has been a consigned artist to the Emporium since 2018. He currently supplies oil lamps, tea light holders, darning sticks and ball point pens to the Emporium.

Retiring in 2018, and having no background in woodworking, Robert joined the Alexandra Hills Men’s Shed as an opportunity to stay active.

“You have to fill the space, which was consumed by work, with other activities to keep your mind active and healthy. You have to keep busy”, he said.
