Alice Springs Beanie Festival

The Fire Beanie depicts colours and patterns which remain after a desert fire storm has passed. It is hand felted in merino wool with embroidery cotton detail.

From Friday 24th June to Sunday 26th July, Competition Beanies will be on display in Gallery One, Araluen Centre, Alice Springs cultural Precinct, Larapinta Drive, Alice Springs.

This year the Competition will be celebrating the beanie's ability to ascribe to the Elements: Earth, Wind, Fire and Water.

Winter Warmers

"Moss and Indigo": unisex scarf hand felted in merino wool with recycled silk shirting.

"Verdant and mixed greens": hand felted wrap/large scarf in merino wool with vintage button.

Snood: hand felted in merino wool with vintage button. Apple green finds its way from the inside out through the black exterior.

The pieces in this show are part of a larger exploration of the colour green, the pervasive colour of the natural world, and its ability to soothe and relax both mentally and physically.

The combination of wool and silk creates an invitation to wrap up in these wearable garments and contemplate the interaction one has with the space in which one finds oneself as well as the sense of renewal and harmony to be discovered within.

On display at the studio@flinders Gallery, Mornington Peninsula, Vic. from 11th June to 3rd July.
