After class today, I paid a visit to the Tasmanian Design Centre. There I saw a few ARTBIKES parked in the entrance foyer.
The ARTBIKE idea started in Hobart offering visitor free bicyle hire to visit art galleries and museums in town. This is a very good idea, in particular for tourists who may not have a car and that bus services here is fairly limited.
Hiring an ARTBIKE is free if it is returned on the same day. All one needs is a photo ID and a credit/debit card. You may hire overnight for $22 or over the weekend for $44, which is a good deal. It will come with a helmet, a lock and a cultural map. The ARTBIKES will be available for hire in late March.
The Tasmanian Design Centre showcases local and contemporary designs and crafts including woodwork, ceramics, jewellries and fabrics. Some of the exhibits there are quite inspirational. In future, when I need some ideas for my woodwork project, I certainly will go there.
