Scarf Festival 2011

Deadline: 6 May 2011 by 4:00pm (RECEIVE)

Scarf Festival 2011: Rhythm of Life

National Wool Museum
Geelong, Victoria
24 June to 21 August, 2011

“The rhythm of life is a powerful beat, it puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet….”

This year we celebrate the rhythm of life; the relationships, events and moments that make each of our lives unique. As with life, each scarf is unique and there is a rhythmic quality to their creation: the whirr of the wheel, the clack of the loom and the clicking of needles.

Scarf Festival 2011 Rhythm of Life, at the National Wool Museum, will display all the scarves created for the Festival, featuring a range of awards for the best scarves. There is no limit to the number of scarves that can be entered by each individual.

All scarves accompanied by completed paperwork are eligible for display as part of the Scarf Festival 2011 Rhythm of Life exhibition.
To be eligible for an award a scarf must have been designed and made by an individual, who is registered as the entrant.
All eligible entries can win the Scarf of the Year award.
Each scarf can only be entered in one category.
No National Wool Museum employees or their direct family members, are eligible for an award. No judge or their direct family members are eligible for an award.
