From very humble beginnings, the Samford Art and Craft Association has proven to be an enduring social and cultural centre for local artisans - a true resource for the Samford Valley and its surrounds - as well as providing valuable community service.
The Slab Hut Art and Craft Gallery is a unique art and craft venue located in John Scott Park, Samford.
You'll find unique handmade gifts designed and made by over 60 different local artists, including:
There are hundreds of items on display and priced to sell, making a visit to The Slab Hut a must for anyone looking to purchase affordable, locally-handmade gifts for friends and family.
The Slab Hut is open from 10am-4pm daily and managed by a rotating roster of local artists and crafts people who have their work on display and for sale in the venue. They have a wealth of information about the art and the individuals who created it.
The centre also holds regular programs, workshops and events.
Building the slab hut was an initiative of late Councillor Brian Burke, to reflect Samford’s early colonial days and is now regarded as a village icon. In 1998, local Rotarians set out to turn the empty hut into a vibrant creative space, establishing a group to promote and encourage the development of art and craft among local practitioners. The Samford Art and Craft Association Inc continues to be a socio-cultural centre for local artisans in Samford Valley and a must-visit destination for day trippers from Brisbane, wanting to engage with the local arts community.
The Slab Hut opens seven days a week and acts as a tourist centre offering free brochures and information.
