Melbourne Scarf Festival

Coast to coast

Got a Highly Commended Thematic Category in the Scarf Festival in Geelong for my Coast to Coast scarf. Wool on silk using 33 resists.

The theme for the festival was “coastlines” and my scarf was inspired by the Japanese traditional drawings of waves pounding the Japanese coast, I have used the hollow form of felt to produce movement and light stitching and beads for detail, to hint at the subtle strokes of the Japanese work.

The scarf is a tube (resist 1) with 16 resists perpendicular to the tube at each end for the waves.
