Studio Artemis was established in 2008 by Director and clay artist Kristin Miller. The studio was named after the Hellenic Goddess of the Moon, wild animals and wilderness. The Temple of Artemis in Turkey was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and became a safe refuge for many requiring sanctuary from the perils of life.
Like its fore bearer, Studio Artemis provides a supportive and nurturing space for people wanting to explore and experiment within the creative realm. Due to immense popularity ,the studio has continued to expand since its inception and relocated to a new and larger site in Huntingdale, Melbourne at the end of 2014. Quietly nestled near the popular Huntingdale shopping strip, Studio Artemis is easily accessed via the M1 (Monash Freeway), Dandenong Road and North Road routes.
Studio Artemis conducts classes, private and group tuition and workshops all year round. The studio is large and caters for all abilities including sculpture, wheel throwing, hand building and Art Therapy. Studio Artemis welcomes all ages and abilities to visit their special and unique space where they pride themselves on the nurturing and enhancement of the creative spirit in everyone.
