Geltwood Gumboot Challenge

March 2020

Join in our attempt to set a world record for the most decorated gumboots by handcrafting a cover. The count will be held as part of the 2020 Geltwood Festival Market Day on Sunday 29th March.

Rules are: the cover should be handcrafted and cover at least 75% of the gumboot upper , no need to make pairs as single, damaged or creations made using multiple boots are ok.

If you can't craft a cover you can donate your old gumboots. If you can craft but don’t have any gumboots we will give you donated boots. Collection  and distribution of donated gumboots is at the Millicent Public Library.

 

Gumboot covers will be accepted from anywhere in the world so get your friends and family involved. They just need to send us the covers with a note as to where it was made and we will put it on a boot and include it in the count.
