The Handcraft of Muriel Danvers Power at Craft NSW

Mrs. Power was a fascinating woman with eclectic interests. She wrote poetry and was a pioneer of the Sydney arts and crafts movement, becoming the inaugural President of the Society of Arts and Crafts of NSW in 1906.

There she was elected as their first President, a role she assumed on three more occasions, the last in 1927. In 2016 The Society celebrated its 110th birthday and is now the oldest surviving craft organisation in Australia. From 18th April to 21st May, at the Society’s gallery, Craft NSW, a small collection of Mrs. Power’s handcraft, including china painting, weaving and poker work, will be on exhibition.
