“I started making my wreaths, mirrors, driftwood boats & clocks 3 years ago after moving to Flinders Island. My husband and I walk the beaches every day, picking up what gets washed up. I find treasures in some of the rubbish like the amazing multi coloured ropes and that’s what inspired me to look at ways I could create my products. From this developed my craft business castawaycreationsaus which I operate through Instagram, regular local markets and just recently, the St Giles Niche Market in Launceston.”
