New Exhibition: From Hardwoods to Soft Cottons
BY Coffs Harbour Regional Museum | 10-Aug-2017
Objects and photographs from our early timber industry and the delicacy of hand-crafted textiles highlight differing experiences of work for men and women in the early days of settlement.
Showcasing photographs and rich collections of objects from Coffs Harbour’s early timber industry alongside personal and household textiles created by women for their families, Hardwoods to Soft Cottons highlights the differing experiences of work for men and women in the early days of settlement. While timber was one of our foundation industries, the domestic work of women also built this city. Explore the contrast between the “hard yakka” of timber work and the delicacy of hand-crafted textiles.
From Hardwoods to Soft Cottons opens Thursday 24 August and runs until Saturday 21 October 2017.
