"The Apron as Art" is the latest exhibition at the Old Courthouse Museum.
It features examples from the apron collection of local potter Merrie Hamilton.
Whether made from flighty gauze, even a re-purposed sugar bag, all were created with an eye to colour and fabric.
Originally serving the practical needs of a stone mason, a gilded Masonic apron links to an artist's paint-stained cover, and the practical domestic apron is embroidered, patched, pocketed, in a wide variety of ways.
The Museum invites you to explore your own memories of this humble garment.
The museum is open Tuesday to Thursday, from 10am-3pm, and the second Sunday of the month from 10am-1pm. Telephone 4471 1635.
