J Shed is a 1912 historic Fremantle building originally built on Victoria Quay as a cargo shed. The building was removed 1968-69 and rebuilt under the cliff on the western side of Arthur Head. It has had a variation of purposes since its move, including being a fibreglass workshop until 1988. In 1992 the building was repurposed again - after a restoration completed by the City of Fremantle - to be used as the independent semi-industrial art studios you see today. It is a collection of artists studios, notably Jenny Dawson Ceramic Arts Studio, Greg James Sculpture Studio Gallery, Peter Zuvela Photography, and Ross Potter, Artist. The southern section is or was temporarily and unfortunately let to Sunset Events, who occasionally take over the whole area, make a lot of noise, leave a mess, and generally lower the tone.
