“As I created these tea towels, I was enthralled with the beauty of the woven cloth. And yet, I still experienced frustration that this cloth would “just be a tea towel” and not something of greater (perceived) value. So strong is our perception of a utilitarian domestic textile.” - Deborah Payne

Weavers from all over Australian were invited to design and weave kitchen hand and tea towels to enter in our competition and exhibition celebrating the history and future of women’s work and craft.

Artisans will be present for all opening hours. Some work will be available for sale.
