Summary

Digital photograph of Jane Manallack crocheting a hot water bottle cover in May 2020. The end result is a grey and orange hot water bottle cover which reads 'iso hug', short for 'isolation hug'.

Jane made many different types of hot water bottle covers as gifts and commissions for friends and family to keep them warm from a distance during the first COVID-19 lockdown period in Victoria in the autumn of 2020. Her photographs show the materials, circumstances, and outcomes of her work in isolation.
