Slovenian Handicrafts - Sydney and Brisbane

Tu pride flash

Following the success of research into Slovenian Immigrant Handicrafts in Victoria, the Institute for Slovenian Studies of Victoria, asked for and received another grant from the Office for Slovenes Abroad, and collaborating with the Slovenian Ethnographic Museum, extended the field of research to the other states with large numbers of Slovene settlers - New South Wales and Queensland. Aleksandra Ceferin and Metka Lenarcic visited Slovenian communities in Sydney and Brisbane from 19 to 25 June 2009, and with the considerable assistance by HASA New South Wales and Slovenian club Planinka in Queensland achieved considerable results. The album is a record of the trip.
