Trevor Clement’s handcrafted sculptures and keepsake jewellery boxes come to life in a tiny woodworking studio, tucked down the driveway of his Cowaramup home. And, just once a year, Trevor opens his private @topcattimber studio space for us to enjoy.

We're grateful to have four Indigenous artists taking part in Open Studios this spring. India Armstrong, Melanie Hume, Jo Bear and Kim Kiosses will bring inspiration from Aboriginal history, traditional stories and culture 🖤💛❤️

Pictured here, an artwork by Melanie Hume, who invites you to her Undalup (Busselton) studio this September. "I was one of the artists that worked on the mural behind the Busselton Woolworths shop. The mural depicts the ocean and the connection between the aboriginal people and the Busselton community. The wall has different symbols in the animals and tells different stories."
