It was a delight to meet Rosie and look through her little shop. Her work is wonderful and she was most friendly and helpful. Rosie produces real Torres Strait artistic work and is to be commended for her talent and enthusiasm. She even offers a service where she will collect you from down town TI and drive you up to her house!

It was just lovely (after a steep walk up the Hargreaves Street Hill) to enter Rosie’s studio. Each cabinet had something very lovely to look at, and attached to each item was a part of Rosie’s story and her exquisite craftswomanship. I bought some very lovely placemats and a tea towel. Rosie was gracious in sharing her story and what the symbolism of the items were. Absolutely worth a visit!

We visited Thursday Island as one of the ports of call on a Viking Cruise. When we disembarked from our tenders, there were several vendors awaiting us at the pier, among them Rosie Ware herself. She has a great selection of her textiles, including smaller things like scarves and larger items like tablecloths. Her art is to use block printing to make designs on fabric, and there were a number of different styles to choose from. She also had magnets, stationery, and other smaller things that had some of her designs on them. Rosie herself was delightful and friendly, and I appreciated being able to buy something unusual and that was straight from the source. While I would love to have seen her shop, it was actually a blessing on this very hot day to have her right at the pier. If you want to see an artist in person, don't miss Rosie Ware!

Rosie has done us all a favour by opening her studio for us to share her beautiful work. Stunning fabric designs and jewellery on offer, topped off with the opportunity of a magnificent view over TI. This and her beautiful personality make it a must do item when visiting the island
