Beanies to Berets - Bigger and Better

Last year's inaugural Beanies to Berets Exhibition by Onkaparinga Arts was such a success, it is now an annual event but bigger and better. 

Organisers Kaye Oliver and Helen Herde have been hard at work. This year's Beanies to Berets Exhibition will celebrate its launch with the inclusion of a Creative Textiles Weekend of craft demonstrations and workshops.

Whether you want to learn more about your own craft or be introduced to something new, I'm sure you will find something that takes your fancy.  

Demonstrations include:
  • felting
  • quilting
  • lacemaking
  • spinning
  • indigenous weaving (using natural indigenous materials)
  • conventional weaving
  • knitting
  • and crochet (of course!)
  • and more 

The 'workshops' are free, informal affairs with no bookings required. Come down and meet the experts in their crafts, see how it's done and perhaps 'have a go' yourself!

The Beanies to Berets Creative Textile Weekend will utilise two spaces at the Onkaparinga Arts Centre.  The exhibition itself will be in the gallery space and the Creative Textile Weekend will have demonstrations and stall holders in the hall.

To participate as a stallholder or to contribute beanies or berets (or scarves) for sale, you will need to be quick as the deadline for submissions is tomorrow, Friday 22 June 2018. I am so sorry for the late notice but I didn't find out all the details until today either!* 

Further details are on the Entry Form which can be downloaded from the Beanies to Berets Creative Textile Weekend web page:

* I'm afraid life has been so busy with other pressing matters that I hadn't had a chance until today to follow up crafting activities. Sadly, I have no pictures in today's blog entry in order to get the message out as quickly as possible but there are plenty of photographs in the Related Posts listed below.
