“Flag makers inspire new museum exhibition” Ballarat Courier 14 January 2014

 

"Artist Fiona Crawford has created an exhibition celebrating the life of her great-great-grandmother Anastasia Withers. One of the first women on the gold fields, Withers hid gold for miners and in 1854 used blue wool and white slim to create the Eureka Flag. Crawford’s exhibition traces her ancestors’ journey through printmaking, textiles and sculpture”. The Age January 2014
