CONNECTING THREADS EXHIBITION
24th June, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5th August, 2016 @ 4:00 pm
CONNECTING THREADS – TRACING FASHION, FABRIC & EVERY DAY LIFE AT NEWSTEAD HOUSE
Journey in to the design, detail and domestic days of Newstead House as you explore the uncovered treasures from the Newstead House textile collection. This exhibition is the culmination of nearly 2 years research by Catriona Fisk who spent hours looking in our nooks and crannies to bring to you this wonderful exhibition and publication as part of the CONNECTING THREADS project. From the stunning purple gown of the 1790s to the samplers made by Brisbane school girls in the early twentieth century this unique exhibition offers a glimpse in to our fascinating textile collection. This research has been made possible by the Brisbane City Council History Grant initiative and is an exciting moment in the history of our house museum. The exhibition will open during our normal opening hours: Friday 9am - 4pm Saturday 9am - 1pm Sunday 9am - 4pm
