Auntie Janelle Duncan, Auntie Margaret Torrens, Theresa Bolt and Kylie Caldwell are based in Casino and have been meeting for over ten years to share stories, learn traditional crafts and make intricate pieces. Sharing skills has been a way of renewing culture for the group. The artists have held several exhibitions locally as well as showing at Boomalli Gallery in Sydney. The women have transformed their passion for weaving into a unique collection of garments, jewellery, bags and baskets. The group have also conducted numerous workshops locally, regionally and nationally.
