My name is Prue Cerin
I love making hand crafted items. What is more, I love sharing my creations with others!
At the knees of the respected older women in my life – my mother, my aunts and my grandmothers – and alongside my sisters, I learned to sew, knit, crochet and embroider. In my father’s shed, I learned how to plan projects and to draft, measure, cut and glue.
From both of my mother and my father, I inherited dominant genes for fairness, social justice and human rights. I hold dear an early childhood memory of my parents welcoming Hungarian asylum seekers into our home after the Melbourne, Australia 1956 Olympic Games.
My grandchildren (who call me ‘Baba’) are now my inspiration for trying to create a fairer, more humane, more sustainable and kinder world for them to inherit.
is a word play on my family name and my human rights concerns.
Sales of my Wright Angles creations enable me to support some of my favourite human rights and social justice projects that include Amnesty International, the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre, Grandmothers Against Detention of Refugee Children, Kapululangu Aboriginal Women’s Law and Culture Centre, Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), The Fred Hollows Foundation, Tiny Toones Cambodia and Tjuntjuntjara Women’s Centre.
I like to practice Mahatma Gandhi’s words: Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
I believe that no contribution is too small to count: If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito!
Father Bob Maguire’s words, heard in a radio interview, guide me: We may feel that what we do is only a drop in the ocean, but we need to remember that the ocean is made up of drops.
