ss News From The Wattlebird – Wattlebird Yarn

News From The Wattlebird

Recently my photographer / daughter Angela Dwyer and I headed to Ross in the Tasmanian Midlands for a yarn photoshoot. It was a spectacular summers day, the light was bright and clear, not ideal for photography but oh well you can't choose the weather.

Ross is one of the oldest towns in Tasmania, most of the buildings are colonial sandstone, convict built. We particularly wanted to explore how the yarn would look against the stone walls and we weren't disappointed. Ross is also in the Midlands wool growing region of Tasmania so it seemed fitting to shoot, there even though the yarn bases I use originate from NSW.

History feels very close in Ross with evidence of its convict past everywhere around the town. This region was also the focus of many battles with the Tasmanian Aboriginal people who fought the colonisation of their lands. History is very deep and dark in Tasmania.

We had a wonderful day exploring the nooks and crannies of Ross. I hope you enjoy Angela's fantastic photos that are now on the home page of my shop. Follow @Wattlebirdyarn on Instagram and Facebook and subscribe to my email list to see more.
