From Hardwoods to Soft Cottons Exhibition

Primary tabs

Thursday, 24 August 2017 (All day) to Saturday, 21 October 2017 (All day)

Showcasing photographs and rich collections of objects from Coffs Harbour’s early timber industry alongside personal and household textiles created by women for their families, Hardwoods to Soft Cottons highlights the differing experiences of work for men and women in the early days of settlement. While timber was one of our foundation industries, the domestic work of women also built this city. Explore the contrast between the “hard yakka” of timber work and the delicacy of hand-crafted textiles.
