Having grown up in Warrnambool, I would often visit Fletcher Jones gardens on the site of the factory.
On 22 July, Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts will be screening Fabric of a Dream: The Fletcher Jones Story documentary. It's directed by Dennis K. Smith (Rainbow Bird and Monster Man, Troubled Minds – The Lithium Revolution) and produced by Melanie Coombs (Academy Award winning producer, Harvie Krumpet).
The 52 minute film celebrates the life of a remarkable man with bold and imaginative ideas, whose entrepreneurial skills and marketing acumen became legendary.
