Wednesday 30 September 2020
DigiTalk: Convicts & cabbage tree hats

The manufacture of cabbage tree hats, commonly undertaken by convicts, was a thriving cottage craft from the 1790s until the 1930s. On Wednesday 30 September, historians Sue and Don Brian will present a DigiTalk on the historical significance of this former staple of Australian fashion. In addition to demonstrating how the iconic hat was made, he will share archival photos and traditional songs.
