Mavis Noden

Introducing Mavis Noden, 90.

Mavis originally came from Toowoomba in the Darling Downs where she lived for many years, and where her love for craft work developed.

A multiple award winner, Mavis’s repertoire ranges from bark artwork to beading, drawing and card making. Not only was she passionate about creating art, she was also a certifier of bark artwork and a member of the Toowoomba Art & Bark Association.

Nowadays, Mavis enjoys any type of beading work, but specializes in working with very small beads. From these beads she often makes Christmas decorations, primarily for her family to decorate their Christmas trees or Christmas tables with.

At present she is making several Christmas decorations for her suite at Arcare Caboolture and has also offered to share her skills and knowledge with the Arcare Caboolture Community, who are interested in picking up a new skill.
