The Hidden Talents of QVMAG Staff
This cool bonnet is one of six made by Cindy Thomas – a QVMAG staffer with hidden talents. The bonnets will be given to Tasmanian artist Christina Henri for her Roses from the Heart project.
Each of Cindy’s bonnets commemorates a convict woman from Tasmania’s past, and they will travel to Britain for a ‘Blessing of the Bonnets’ before being dispersed across a world-wide Bonnet Trail.
This bonnet was made for Sarah Waters, who is featured on the display panels at the Cascade Female Factory in Hobart.
