It’s all home made at Moruya Museum

In this era of everything disposable, the Moruya Museum opens it’s doors to showcase household items handmade to last through necessity.

Curator Brian Harris said the museum would present items of bush furniture, home-made clothes, farm tools and exquisite laces and jewelry in the Everything Hand Made exhibition, a part of the River of Art festival.

“Another intriguing feature of the exhibition will be our collection of trench art with objects such as sweetheart brooches and salad servers made by soldiers during the world wars,” Mr Harris said.

He said festival goers should be sure to visit for the exhibitions opening and afternoon tea at 2pm.

“We will be selling old-fashioned jams, relishes and pickles – look out for Maud Keating’s mustard pickles, Margaret Kirby’s mint jelly and Mrs Murphy’s plum chutney,” Mr Harris said.
