Noongar Bush Dolls

Noongar Bush Dolls

Yarn with Noongar artist Geri Hayden while you create your character from natural materials and mixed media. Enjoy the playfulness of working with our beautiful bush plants.


Geri grew up on the Reserve in Brookton with her family, old Nanas and great-grandmothers. She watched the old women make dolls for her and her sisters from whatever materials they could find. As she grew older she would make her own dolls with bottles and tins, and dress them with baby rugs that her old Nans would give her. It is these fond memories of her family that has made her so passionate about cultural arts and continuing the tradition.
