November: Gathering bonnets for "Roses from the Heart" Project

In October Madeleine had asked if we could make a bonnet each to send to Australian artist Christina Henri for her installation "Roses from the Heart" to commemorate over 22,000 women who were shipped as convicts from Enland, Ireland, Scotland and Wales to Australia. At November's meeting a good number of bonnets were submitted and were modelled for a photograph! If you still have not made a bonnet, but would like to do so just click here www.christinahenri.com.au to download the pattern and bring your bonnet to December's meeting as Madeleine is still collecting them.
