The Artisan Store is the inspired idea of Rowena Mitchell, a building designer, silversmith and now, business owner. She saw that many artists had no permanent location for their work and the public had no way to find these artists, so she brought the two together and the result is The Artisan Store in High Street Fremantle.
Home to a beautiful collection of WA art, jewellery and homewares, The Artisan Store is the perfect place to purchase a special gift for Mother’s Day. You can even commission an artist to create a unique piece that’s as individual as your mum.
The Artisan Store is at 81a High Street, Fremantle. For any enquiries please call 0435 398 148 or visit the websites below for a little creative inspiration.
