The exhibition elevates the humble Beanie to an art form and displays the fine craftsmanship and flair of beanie makers across the country. This exhibition inspires audiences to laugh, don crazy headwear and bring out those knitting needles all over again.

Jo Nixon, key beanie artisans and the beanie tent will travel to Darwin to attend the opening and to provide floor talks and beanie workshops allowing both Darwin and national audiences to experience the beanie craze for themselves!
