Every week the women of Meroogal pitched in to help with washday, which they dubbed ‘the Water Picnic’. 

We invite you to help us fill the iconic clothesline with your own weird and wondrous creations in our progressive artwork. 

Tour the historic house, then experience doing the washing ‘old style’ with washboards, make a ‘knitting Nancy’ using recycled materials, learn how to French knit, and weave your knitting onto the wire hangers on the Hills hoist to help re-create ‘the Water Picnic’.
