Be inspired by treasures from the sea
Would your children like to make a driftwood dream catcher, a driftwood photo frame, or a mirror decorated with unusual shells? Children and families are welcome to create their own ocean-themed artworks, using shells and driftwood at Tres Noosa, a boutique homewares and gift shop in Noosa Junction.

These unique workshops are run every Saturday and during school holidays from this stunning shop that is famous for having a sandy floor - tres cool. The shop itself is filled with all kinds of treasures from the sea - from star fish cards to shell chandeliers to driftwood chairs and everything "beachie" in between.
These workshops by the sea provide a tactile, imaginative art experience for children (and adults) of all ages, however, bookings are essential as they are quite popular. It is also possible to make stunning DIY ocean-themed necklaces, miniature shell candles, or rainbow shell-filled bottles without making a booking at this lovely shop.
These beautiful creations would make a perfect decoration for any beach house or perhaps a summer themed present for mum, auntie or grandma. Either way, my kids love visiting Tres Noosa maybe because the space is so relaxing. In fact, I usually have to drag them (and myself) away.
