Farm fashion comes to Kyneton

Fancy an outfit made from baling twine or sheep ear tags?

An exhibition of imaginative garments created from farming materials repurposed into fashionable and unique clothing is on show in Kyneton.

Direct from the catwalks of the Elmore Field Days, the wildly unique dresses, hats and other wearable objects are created as part of the event’s Wearable Agricultural Art competition.

The challenge for the participating young designers in the Wearable Agricultural Art Competition is to create wearable art made from materials found on farms or farming related industries and transform them into wearable objects. Designers can use anything from baling twine to sheep ear tags to create garments that are judged on their creativity and individuality.

The 2017/18 entries from the Wearable Agricultural Art Competition are on show at Kyneton Museum until 8 September. The Ag Art exhibition is full of colour and various textures and will showcase the interesting ways to repurpose agricultural materials.

A ‘shoe blinging’ workshop for children which includes entry to the museum’s Ag Art exhibition will be held on Thursday 4 July at 11am at the museum.
