Crochet and knitting enthusiasts - we want you!

As part of this year’s Everlasting Kings Park Festival we are running another of our famous community crocheting projects.

We are creating an installation of hundreds of crocheted everlastings and other beautiful WA wildflowers to be sewn onto a dress and displayed at Aspects of Kings Park Gallery Shop.

There are so many talented crafty members in Perth, and we would love you to be involved in creating pieces for this celebration of WA wildflowers.

Dust off those crochet hooks, pull out some wool and create something magical for thousands of visitors to see this September.

If your talent lies more in sewing or knitting, we would also love your flowers!

 

Here are a few flower patterns to get you started (but there are plenty more online - and we'd love to see native flower interpretations!)::

 

To have your beautiful creations featured in our wildflower exhibition, please drop off or post your flowers to the Kings Park Administration building  between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday, or Aspects of Kings Park 7 days a week 9am - 5pm, by 1 September 2022.
