Sturt - 80 Years in the Making



3 October - 14 November 2021

To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Australia’s oldest design centre we’re honouring the legendary makers who made (and continue to make) the pilgrimage to live, work and teach at this cherished cultural destination in the Southern Highlands. This exhibition highlights why this humble Highlands enclave deserves to be renowned and treasured as one of the most important models of the post-war studio crafts movement in Australia. Sturt – 80 Years in the Making will draw upon the incredible legacy of Sturt’s permanent collection – a gift from hundreds of the world’s master makers who generously came to share their skills at Sturt, along with the pioneering Australian artisans who went on to contribute a lifetime of wisdom in their chosen craft.
