My mother and I were going through some of her recipe books while cooking over Christmas and we found this handmade printed card. It was a card written to my mothers Aunty Elsie by some missionaries in Thailand (Elsie supported missionaries financially and emotionally). Beautifully it is a 'business [that] employes around 50 poor and low-caste women, who are naturally a high risk group for trafficking. Bhaktapur was originally funded by UNICEF but they are now a self-sustaining business' (Made by Survivors Blog, 2007). More info on Global conduct, the little shop of fair trade.
Went to see the Christmas exhibition at Bosz Art Gallery with artworks from John Doyle, Gwen Tasker, Sue Pickford, Paula Quintela among others. Gorgeous works well worth the visit.
Donna Malone is having a studio sale at 3 Alderson Street, Newmarket. Here are two small pieces I now have of hers. Beautiful works.
