Sunday – 19 March 2023, 4.30–6.30 pm
The Cottage Samplers, a talk by Catherine Gay, PhD candidate, University of Melbourne, and National Trust volunteer guide. Our speaker enlightened us on how the samplers we have on display in La Trobe’s Cottage, and the reproduction of Rose Pellet’s beautiful sampler, reflect the importance placed on developing home-making skills in the education of young ladies during La Trobe’s time. Sparkling wine and birthday cake. Admission: $15.
(La Trobe Society event – guests are welcome
You are invited to bring along a family sampler)
