meet shed eleven
Shed eleven is the creative collaboration between sisters-in-law Fanny Clarsen and Jemma Wlasichuk. We transform furniture into stunning feature pieces that add soul to modern homes. We see the potential in objects that others may not.
A simple colour change alone is often transformative, but a complete makeover of a neglected piece of vintage furniture creates a stylish, cost-effective feature. Solid, useful furniture with beautiful lines is renewed, reworked and reintegrated into modern lifestyles.
It’s fair to say we passionately believe that having a beautiful home should not come at a cost to the environment. Reviving old pieces means we can update our homes without adding to the ‘fast furniture’ problem. Every found piece is unique and carefully hand-finished to a stunning result.
From our workshop at #11 on Sydney’s upper north shore, we’ve restored hundreds of pieces during our two years in business. Our artistic and technical skills led to us being invited to be the Annie Sloan Painters in Residence in 2018.
meet the makers
Born in Ivory Coast to an American mother and a French father, Fanny’s childhood was spent in France, Switzerland, Spain and the USA. She has continued her adventures as an adult, travelling and living on all continents.
Her many travels have given Fanny an eclectic and sophisticated eye. Putting down roots in Australia has allowed Fanny to fully realise her creative and interior design talents with the establishment of shed eleven.
Growing up in an Australian Army family, Jemma had a gypsy childhood. She has lived in Papua New Guinea, various places throughout Australia, and the USA. Her love of travel endured and she has travelled extensively as an adult.
Creativity has been a constant throughout Jemma’s life. She has studied and continues to enjoy cooking, playing piano, writing, and many forms of visual art. Along with enjoying a career in the creative and culinary arts, Jemma also has a thorough grounding in finance and small business management.
collaborations with other artists
Shed eleven works with local businesses to supply furniture for both retail and interior fit outs.
We can work with interior designers, theatres, photographers, stylists to create magic.
Our work in the community
One of the greatest pleasures of owning our own business is doing regular work for charity. We have donated pieces to a community preschool, a primary and a secondary school for their fundraising.
Please get in touch if you would like to work with us on your next project.
