This exhibition will be open to the public from 9am to 5pm on weekdays & 9am to 4pm on weekends at the Richard Randall Art Studio, Brisbane Botanical Gardens, Mt Coot-tha.

With only TEN days to shop, come and spend time in the gardens, enjoy lunch at the refurbished cafe and then shop for the perfect Christmas gifts!

An afternote: Both Sharyn and Wendy have studied and/ or taught extensively in Australia and overseas. Both have travelled with Expertise events as featured artists to Craft and Quilt fairs throughout Australia. Both have exhibited extensively. Sharyn also had the privilege of being awarded a Churchill Fellowship-travelling and studying overseas. Wendy has just returned from a teaching trip to Iceland, Ireland and the UK as well as teaching at Titjikala Community in Central Australia and the Beanie Festival in Alice Springs. Sharyn has recently been on a textile tour of Morocco. These travels have influenced their making and their exhibition will highlight these travels and resulting works. They like to think of themselves as a combination of textile nomad and Granny-preneur!
