Marcia's Beautiful bonnet
Conceptual artist Christina Henri has a number of projects on the go all relating to the display of bonnets, each dedicated to a female convict sent from the UK to Australia. Each bonnet made is embroidered in a style of the makers choosing and with the name of a convict.
I made the base for this one but the embroidery is all the original design and handiwork of Marcia Conway. I think its beautiful!
You can find out more information about the project here.
