How can I help?

So this year, our sole project is a woolly partnership with Artlands and Regional Arts Victoria on a little project we like to call Crafting the Merch (because that is what it’s called..)

Artlands is a biennial national conference celebrating all things regional arts. This year it’s happening in Bendigo and Castlemaine (October).  The ‘Merch’ is wool-crafted scarves that will be given as gifts to conference-goers, and we’re crafting them! We already have over 70 individual participants who are busily knitting, crocheting, weaving, felting, and possibly pioneering other wool-craft techniques we’ve ever even heard of – in one giant, woolly display of the incredible talent and generosity in our south west community.

If you’d like to part of the Artlands 2018 scarfy-knitty posse, the very general brief is:

Scarf. Wool. Yellow (as component, if not entirety) 

South-west Victoria folk: you are so lucky because we have regular knit-a-longs with cream powder puffs. Email us here for details.

Everyone else: We love you too but powder puffs don’t travel well in the mail! The Artlands crew will be very lovely to you however – click here for further info.
