Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor: 100 Women 100 Brooches 100 Stories

After two years touring around Australia, artisan’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor exhibition will have its final showing at APDL’s Design Lounge, featuring 40 of 100 brooches.

The 40 brooches selected by SLQ celebrate the achievements of Queensland women through history and the creative design and artistic talents of Queensland craftspeople.

This exhibition was conceived by artisan to celebrate the 2011 centenary of International Women’s Day. The old rhyme was a starting point for 100 of Australia’s finest women jewellers to make a brooch in response to the professional achievements of 100 Australian women in every field imaginable — from tinker to tailor, bishop to soldier, bullocky to lawyer.

This free exhibition will run from 17 Nov – 14 Dec, Asia Pacific Design Library, level 2.
