On 2 Nov JamFactory launched its new studios, gallery and shop at the iconic Seppeltsfield Winery in the Barossa.
The 1,000 square meter facility, situated in the historic stables building at Seppeltsfield (only an hour’s drive from Adelaide), provides studio space for around a dozen professional artisans, a gallery for free public exhibitions and a retail shop presenting outstanding hand-made products.
A separated walkway through the space enables visitors to see skilled makers at work, learn about the materials and processes behind the products and discover the heritage of the building, which dates back to 1851.
JamFactory at Seppeltsfield brings together two significant South Australian brands - both with a commitment to premium quality and bespoke production. Through the collaboration, Seppeltsfield will take its first major step towards building a unique tourism offering.
Complementing its established wine heritage, the Seppeltsfield estate will combine arts and design activities through the new JamFactory facility, as well as a culinary drawcard through the development of a destination restaurant, launching in 2014.
JamFactory is a not for profit organisation that supports and promotes good design and fine craftsmanship. It has been nurturing the careers of emerging artists and designers and presenting innovative new work to audiences since 1973.
JamFactory at Seppeltsfield will present nationally significant exhibitions, hands on
workshops, artist talks and other public programs.
It will provide a major creative hub within the Barossa and will boost cultural
tourism in the region. JamFactory at Seppeltsfield will be open 7 days from 11am - 5pm.
