2020 Tea Cosy Competition

Although COVID-19 has forced us to cancel the 2020 festival events, the committee decided to still run the Tea Cosy Competition. We know how much thought and work cosy creators put into their entries, and it seemed just too disappointing to cancel the competition. So we hatched this: Tea Cosies in Isolation – an e-Cosy Exhibition.

The Tea Cosy Competition Conditions of Entry are unchanged. We still want your entries by Friday 8 May (or postmarked Friday 8 May). We will still be awarding prizes in categories as previously published. Ramona Barry will still judge entries.

However, rather than existing at a location in the real world, the exhibition will only live online. We are still working through the logistics of how to do it and where to upload it, and we’ll let you know our progress!

Ramona Barry will judge the 2020 Tea Cosy Competition. Ramona is a Melbourne-based maker, writer and curator specialising in craft and design. She is the former Art, Craft and Cookery Coordinator for the Royal Melbourne Show, and a former Chair of the Victorian Crafts Council. She is currently Programs and Events Manager for Bridge Darebin. Ramona lives and breathes craft – her achievements are too numerous to list here, but you can find out more on Ramona’s website: monamadeit.com
