Beanie Makers

Everyone is welcome to make beanies for the Woodleigh Beanie Festival! Our beanie definition includes any beanie that is wearable, provides some warmth and is a handmade original! There are two exhibitions at the Woodleigh Beanie Festival:

You can enter either or both of these exhibitions.
MORE INFO

Beanie Central


Beanie Central is where 100s of handmade beanies of all shapes, colours and sizes will come together in one outrageous informal display. They will hang from the ceilings and pile up on the tables. All beanies here must be for sale. The general public will arrive en masse to see your works, try them on, fight each other for their favourite and walk away with armfuls of fabulous headgear!

  • Prices range from $5-$120 (you price your own work)
  • Beanie makers may enter up to ten beanies
  • There is no entry fee, but we do take a 30% commission from the price you put on your beanie
  • You need to fill out an entry form and place an identifying tag on each beanie
  • Beanies must be received by Friday 20th July 2018.
  • Please read the entry form closely.

ENTRY FORM

Beanie Competition and Exhibition


Beanies entered into the Beanie Competition Exhibition must be artistically presented. These beanies will be formally exhibited and will be hung on individual stands or plinths to highlight each work. Everyone is encouraged to have a go and let their imagination go wild, explore different textiles and techniques.

All the beanies entered are judged in the competition and there are 14 different categories for your beanie to be judged in!

  • Beanie makers may enter one or two beanies in this exhibition (at least one of the beanies must be for sale)
  • There is a $20 entry fee per beanie ($10 for students) and a 50% commission taken from the sale price if the beanie sells
  • You need to fill out an entry form and place an identifying tag on each beanie
  • Beanies must be received by Friday 20th July 2018.
  • Please read the entry form closely.
