The tools that have shaped the region...

Mundaring & Hills Historical Society have presented Made in Mundaring, an exhibition at The Mundaring Districts Museum exploring some of the fascinating tools and objects that have shaped the region. 

From the Jarrah slabs felled in the Perth Hills and sent to pave the streets of London, to the beautiful stained-glass windows made by Gowers & Brown for churches throughout WA, the range of tools, building materials, domestic objects, artworks, and inventions made locally is extraordinary.

The exhibition showcases early prototypes and archival material from makers such as Arbortech and artisans from the region, with items from the Mundaring Museum and Shire of Mundaring collection. The ingenuity of people in the past, and in the present, is acknowledged in the array of objects displayed here and in the stories of the individuals who made them.

The exhibition opened on the 22nd of September and will be on display until the end of March 2019. See Made in Mundaring for more information.
