Portraits of a Tea Cosy is a tribute to all those who make and give tea cosies to their loved ones. It is an ode to the taking of tea, the making of friends and the keeping of memories. It is a celebration of family and history and cultures - so much wrapped up and kept warm in a little old tea cosy.

This exhibition is the culmination of a two year journey initiated by yarn artist Loani Prior, aka Queen of Tea Cosies, and professional Brisbane-based photographer Mark Crocker.

A travelling exhibition developed by Warwick Art Gallery and toured by Museum and Gallery Services Queensland. The project is supported by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, state and territory governments and by Arts Queensland in the Department of Science, Information, Technology, Innovation and the Arts and, by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
