“The enthusiasm of the general public was awe-inspiring. Many who had attended the DAAF in previous years were extremely impressed with the Nagula Jarndu works as they were original, unique and beautiful. The colours of the works are very ‘Broome’ and therefore very different to any other textiles and artworks on show.”.
