Frequently Asked Questions

The Dalwallinu Creative Arts Committee has compiled some FAQ to assist you regarding the Dalwallinu Arts Festival. If you need further information please see the terms & conditions on the entry page, the festival details or contact us directly.

What is Patchwork? The sewing together of pieces of fabric into a larger design.  The larger design is usually based on repeating patterns but need not be”.  It is preferable if patchwork items are able to be hung, so they can be displayed.  This is usually done by ‘loops’ being added, for the insertion of a pole/rod which we insert once judged!

What is Textile? A textile is a flexible material made by creating an interlocking network of yarns or threads, which are produced by spinning raw fibres into long and twisted lengths. Textiles are then formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting, tatting, felting, bonding, or braiding these yarns together. The item needs to be a free standing hanging item (not a framed picture)

Can my business be involved with the Makers Market? The Makers Market is on an invitation-only basis, and has no fee for being involved. If you have interest in being a part of the Makers Market please contact us directly to express your interest.

Do I need to be regionally based/local to Dalwallinu to enter? No, we welcome artists from throughout WA (and sometimes even interstate!). The main consideration is getting your art to Dalwallinu to be on display for the exhibition. Drop off points are located throughout Perth and Northam.
