National Tour

Our touring exhibition have been extremely popular around Australia. If your regional gallery is interested in seeing a slice of the festival, in our collection of works please contact Artback NT   (08) 8953 5941

Beanies

The collection was exhibited at the Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery

 

The beanies have been selected to show the development of the beanie within our festival from the practical and fun through to the works of art. Many techniques have been used to make these pieces, including crochet, knitting, felting, sewing and beading.
 Look out for the beanies from the Pitjantjatjara/ Anangu lands around Alice Springs. Many thanks to Artback NT for their assistance in touring this collection.

Please support our show and get along to any venues near you and take your friends, your Nana and any one else you can find. Beanie Festival beanies are for sale at the hosting galleries.
