Making do

Exhibition and Shows

6 Dec 2019 to 15 Mar 2020

Do you think that you could live by the mantra – “Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without”? Come and find out.

During times of hardship, like the Great Depression and the war years, ‘making do’ was a way of life. Resourceful people made the most of what they had, creating furniture from packing crates, continually mending clothing and improvising solutions to make ends meet.

Showcasing fascinating ‘make do’ objects from the past, this exhibition also features reused and repurposed contemporary objects.

Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
