Community art installation

Help create the Festival's biggest ever community art installation! The creative installation will be built from hundreds of 'woven wildflowers' and displayed in Kings Park this September. The circular 'woven wildflowers' will be a mix of sizes and can be woven or crocheted with yarn, fabric or even cellophane. So, get crafty!

Watch our short video to create a woven wildflower for beginners or create your own crochet design if you're more experienced and keen to try something a little more challenging.

The 'Floral Regalia' installation is open to both amateurs and experienced crafty-types. All you need is an old hoola hoop (or smaller hoop such as an embroidery hoop) and some yarn, fabric or other material (preferably recycled!).   

Once your designs are complete, drop them off at Kings Park’s Administration Building by 5.00 pm on Friday 23 August. Then come back in September to see the display.

Share your designs on Instagram using the hashtag #kingsparkfestival.
