The exhibition features handmade scarves. The theme for 2016 is 

Myths and Legends. Myths – Stories of a people and place… ancient and traditional; explaining the natural, the phenomenal and the typical; widely held beliefs or ideas accounting for, explaining and defining our customs and ideals.

Legends - Stories handed down… time-honoured, popular and infamous – truths asserted; the stories that capture human drama and the beliefs regarded as historical but never authenticated.

Interpret a myth, capture a legend, be part of something extraordinary.
