    What bold beautiful work – I heard about the textiles being made on Mornington Island on abc radio this morning and had to look it up and see the garments – so fabulous. Congratulations.

    • Thank you 🙂
      We are very proud of our young ones. Please look out for the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair and Fashion Performance in July 2016! You’d be blown away what our youths are up to.

      Regards
