Mug - Women on Farms Gathering, Macedon Ranges (Kyneton), 2002 Object Reg. No: HT 9431

Mug given to each participant of the 2002 Macedon Ranges (Kyneton) Women on Farms Gathering in their Gathering Bag on registration.

The mug is a very practical recurring ritual of the Gatherings, whereby each participant is given a mug and must then use it for all catering events over the weekend, thus eliminating the need to hire extra crockery and someone to wash-up. It is also a souvenir to take home, reminding the participant of the Gathering weekend.
Black ceramic mug with handle stamped on one side with State Government Victoria logo and 'Department of Natural Resources and Environment' and 'Rural Women's Network Victoria'. The other side has 'Macedon Ranges Women on Farms Gathering 2002 Kyneton' and the triangle logo of the Gathering.
