Entries open for Arts Council 'hold-all' competition

March 3rd, 2017

Entry forms are now open for the Motueka Arts Council's 2017 crafting competition, to make a "hold-all" used for holding ... well ... anything.

Each year the group runs a competition to make an innovative or elegant interpretation of some type of object, and always receives huge numbers of entries from around New Zealand.

This year the goal is to make a hold-all, which the organisers describe as: "If it holds the goods - it's good to enter eg. hats, gloves, boxes, bags".

Entries are now open, and participants have until Friday July 28th to prepare their craft work. You can download the entry form by clicking here.

There are four classes or categories:

  1. Hold-All created with any fibre and/or yarn - any method
  2. Hold-All created with fabric - any method
  3. Hold-All using materials or combinations from the earth (eg wood, clay, flax, shells etc)
  4. Hold-All made by a person aged 16 years or under - any materials and method.

All entries will be on display at the Motueka Memorial Hall Friday 18th August and Saturday 19th August (10am - 4pm), with prizes awarded at 3.30pm on Saturday 19th.

A range of prizes in each class have been donated by Motueka and Tasman businesses, including New World Motueka, Whitwells Menswear, Bird Art Motueka, Pomeroy's Teas & Coffees, Eyebright Country Store, Animal Farm and Elevation Cafe, Nelson Building Society, Whitwells Menswear, Wilsons Abel Tasman, Heart Gallery Mapua, State Cinemas Motueka, Cushla's Village Fabrics, Creative Fibre NZ, Cruella's Natural Fibre Boutique and The Woolshed.
