The finished items will be displayed with photograph of the garment that inspired the work.
Examples of how the piece can be interpreted:
- Use a garment – cut up a garment and make something new.
- Recreate a garment – 3-d or reinterpret it in 2-d with different fabrics or different techniques.
- The garment may be recognisable or no longer recognisable in the finished piece, depending on the ideas and techniques used.
- Use a garment (or a photograph of a garment) as inspiration – for memories, concepts or ideas (garments associated with occasions, memories or people).
Outcomes - we are hoping to have:
- 2-d and 3-d pieces of work
- Using a variety of techniques
- Worked in a variety of scales
The final twist – hanging! We will utilise an interesting hanging scheme to make people intrigued by the theme, to draw them in and to make our exhibition stand out from the crowd.
Our initial ideas are that;
- Wall based pieces will be hung from hangers, coat or skirt,
- Work can be hung in a space,
- Small 3-d work will be on plinths.
Finished pieces need to be handed in at the January 2016 meeting. This is the deadline.
Entry forms will be available at the May 2015 meeting. Further information is available by contacting us
