Laddie Timbery Bidjigal Aboriginal Art and Crafts
Members of the Timbery family regularly produce the artwork and artefacts sold in the shop. Paintings, both traditional and contemporary, are on offer as is Laddie's artwork. Laddie's specialty is burning-in - a technique for burning designs into wood. Other family members are highly regarded for their shell art. There are many other artefacts sold including boomerangs, didgeridoos and bullroarers; many are beautifully decorated and all are authentically sourced from Aboriginal artists in regional New South Wales and around Australia. Laddie is in the shop most days and is always happy to demonstrate boomerang throwing or talk with you about the history of the artwork, what the artefacts are used for, and of course Aboriginal culture, history, and Dreamtime legend. On any day, there is someone at the shop to 'yarn' with on these topics.
