This art piece is created by Joan Hansen who has lived in Hobsons Bay for about 8 years. She was observing the flurry of activity in a birdnest near the back door of her house. The Mother Wren was teaching her offsprings to fly and was getting crossed when they did not follow her instructions. This inspired Joan to capture what she saw in knitting. She started doing the piece when she was 83 years old and took 2 years to complete. Due to her work, we are now able to relive the story of how the Blue Wren builds the nest, nurtures her offsprings and how the life cycle is repeated when the offsprings become independent.
