Mug - Women on Farms Gathering, Glenormiston, 1994 Object Reg. No: HT 10046

White ceramic mug given to participants at the Glenormiston Women on Farms Gathering in 1994. It is an example of the creative presentation of issues affecting rural women at the Gatherings.

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.
