The key event of the Scarf Festival 2011 will be the Rhythm of Life exhibition at the National Wool Museum. A range of workshops will also be presented in both Melbourne and Geelong. The Scarf Festival 2011 program, outlining the range of workshops, will be available from 20 April.
This year celebrate the rhythm of life; the relationships, events and moments that make each of our lives unique. As with life, each scarf is unique and there is a rhythmic quality to their creation: the whirr of the wheel, the clack of the loom and the clicking of needles.

Entries open on March 1 and all scarves, Entry Forms, Tax Invoices, Artists Statement Forms, Scarf Information Forms and fees must be received by the National Wool Museum by 4.00pm on Friday, 6 May 2011.
