Maizie Gularrbangga

Biography

Maizie began working at Bábbarra Women’s Centre as a cleaner. Her growing interest in the work of the sewing team meant she began to be mentored on the sewing machine by older, more experienced women.

Maizie moved to Manayingkarírra (Maningrida) from Milingimbi for her partner, and frequently returns to her island home in East Arnhem Land to visit family.
