Rhythm of Life – Scarf Festival 2011

The rhythm of life is a powerful beat, puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet

Nobody appreciates the humble scarf like the annual Scarf Festival in Geelong! Offering something for everybody even the tiniest bit scarf-minded, Scarf Festival 2011 takes the scarf from a modest winter knit to an artistically and lovingly crafted art form – with a lot of fun thrown in along the way.

Featuring an eclectic exhibition of original handcrafted scarves entered by individuals from around the country, Scarf Festival 2011 is held at Victoria’s home of wool – the National Wool Museum in Geelong.

Entries have been created to reflect this year’s theme: the ‘rhythm of life’, with entrants ranging from primary school students to some of the country’s most accomplished artisans. All scarves entered will be displayed in this unique exhibition and most will be available for purchase.

There’s also an interesting program of craft demonstrations on offer, providing visitors with the opportunity to see first-hand some of the amazing things being achieved in the world of craft today.

Scarf Festival 2011 is on from 24 June to 21 August, 2011.
