Huge variety of ideas in 'hold-all' exhibition

August 20th, 2017

Despite wet conditions, a good number of people visited Memorial Hall on Friday and Saturday to view the entries in Motueka Arts Council's "make a hold-all" crafting competition.

This year the goal was to make a hold-all, which the organisers described as: "Anything that holds the goods". With such an open scope, it was not surprising to see a great variety of ideas.

There were four 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.

A range of prizes were 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.
