The SHAC is now a not-for-profit association.

Our beautiful Southern Highlands is filled with creative talent. We have artisans of many types, artists working in all kinds of media, and talented designers in abundance.

Here at the SHAC we aim to bring together some of our talented creatives together under one roof, creating a choice destination for visitors to our region as well as our local community.

Visitors will be able to see artisans and artists at work as they create stunning one-of-a-kind artworks; and will be able to purchase finished works to take home.

We are now calling for members to join the association. Keep your eyes on this space.
