March Toss n Tell – Timeless Collaboration & Charity Project

The scarf is one of the humblest pieces of clothing but it is also one of the longest serving, it has been documented since the Ancient Egyptian times.  The scarf has kept us warm, aided our modesty, and mopped our sweat. But besides these functional aspects it has also marked the wearer in some way. The scarf has indicated rank, position, allegiance, and class. It is used in ceremony, ritual and rites.  The scarf is timeless.

A focal point of our 2022 Exhibition Marks Over Time will be the collaborative work in the Timeless installation.  Timeless is an exhibition within an exhibition with a contribution from every exhibition participant.  It will be an installation of hanging scarves all made in greyscale, black to white, and of a similar size 1500mm x 200mm.  They can made with any felting technique and embellished using any textile technique but the only colours are black through to white and any grey in between.  The scarves will be hung so that viewers can walk through them like a forest.

All proceeds from the sale of the Timeless scarves will be our fund raising event for 2022.

This Toss n Tell is an opportunity to make your scarf together with our Membership in a truly collaborative project. Bring your felting gear and lets do it.
