Scarf Festival is the National Wool Museum's annual celebration of all things scarf. #CelebrateTheScarf
The 2018 Scarf Festival theme is: Living on the Land.
This must-see textile exhibition is an eclectic showcase of original handcrafted scarves entered by anyone - from school kids to beginner crafters to accomplished artisans from Australia and internationally.
Exhibition runs at the National Wool Museum in Geelong from Friday 8 June until Sunday 26 August 2018.
We have a fabulous line up of events that you won't want to miss, as part of Scarf Festival 2018 including:
The Masterclass Series: discover or refine your creative skills with a series of exclusive NWM Masterclasses by leading artists, Heather Frizzell, Jo Bagge and Nichola Prested.
Scarf After Dark Degustation: pop on a fancy scarf and come to an exclusive showing of Scarf Festival 2018 and sample local foods, wine and music curated specifically for the exhibition.
Wool La La: join us for a bilingual tour of Scarf Festival 2018 in the language of fashion - French!
Scarf Festival Floor Talk: Discover Scarf Festival 2018 at lunch time on 12 June 2018 with National Wool Museum Senior Curator, Dr Luke Keogh, with the floor talk included in your entrance ticket.
Most of the scarves displayed in the exhibition are available for purchase, although all scarves must remain on display until the close of the exhibition.
The exhibition is accompanied by a range of public programs displaying traditional crafts as well as some of the more unusual and cutting edge techniques.
Hosted by the National Wool Museum since 2008, the Scarf Festival attracts hundreds of entries each year culminating in a fantastic exhibition opening launch event.
