A dazzling array of fibre objects from Arnhem Land form the new exhibition Women with Clever Hands past and present at University of Queensland Anthropology Museum. Hats suitable for the Melbourne cup, handbags for shopping expeditions to feathered bodywear for ceremony are all to be found here along with mats, baskets, string bags and a small menagerie of animals.
We invite you to join curator Louise Hamby and artists Lucy and Penny Wanapuyngu as they host a morning of weaving and story-telling within the exhibition Women with Clever Hands past and present.
