Patonga women have been showing their talents with a spinning wheel at the Patonga Bakehouse Art Gallery during July.
Ms Trudy Dekeijzer and her friends, Ms Donna Grech and Ms Denise James, have been sitting with their spinning wheels outside the gallery for visitors throughout the month of July. Ms Dekeijzer has been exhibiting her Shibori indigo silk wool and cotton scarfs and shawls. Ms Dekeijzer has since sold out of her creations and has obtained several orders for more. Ms Jocelyn Maughan, of the Bakehouse Art Gallery, said she welcomed enquiries from local artists to display their works or craft at the gallery.
