Artist Challenge

Folklore and Fashion

The Artist Challenge is an optional friendly contest for vendors participating in The Wearable Art Show.


The artists are challenged to push their creativity to inspiring levels, using their medium to interpret the current show’s theme.

In addition to guest judges, show attendees are invited to vote for their favourite item.

There are 2 awards for the Artist Challenge:

Fairy Cardigan
The Wearable Art Show Friends

This year’s challenge is: Folklore and Fashion.


Infinite stories waiting to be told and made. Each has our tools for creating them.

Our artists are invited to respond, in their medium, to a themed challenge, pushing their creativity to inspiring levels. In addition to guest judges, show attendees vote on their favourite item and there are two awards given: The People’s Choice award and The Patron’s Choice award. In 2022 our theme is “Interwoven” – the fusion of different crafting techniques and materials brought together in the wearable. It allows for two (or more) artists to collaborate and create one piece if they wish.
