Madeleine told us about a project called 'Roses from the Heart' by a Tasmanian artist, Christina Henri. Christina's project is in honour of women convicts from Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales who were sent to Australia between 1788 and 1853 as slaves. Christina hopes to collect hand-made calico bonnets from stitchers all over the world which will be exhibited world-wide as an art installation. For more information on Christina's work and how you can get involved in the project see http://www.christinahenri.com.au/ where you can download the pattern. If you decide to get involved and would like to receive a woman's name to embroider on your bonnet, contact Madeleine Jordan by phone or email.
