7000 handmade beanies arrive in Alice Springs to celebrate fabulous head gear. A weekend full exhibitions, textile workshops, great food, live music. A festival full or colour, warmth and joy!
Hand made beanies have long been valued in Central Australia. Everyone, no matter who they are, needs a beanie to enjoy the outdoors during our crisp, cold winter nights. Centralian craftspeople from remote areas and Alice Springs have taken up the challenge to raise beanie making into a distinctive regional art form.
