The Artist Challenge is a friendly contest for vendors participating in The Wearable Art Show to demonstrate creativity, collaboration and of course, the selected feature art form.
The feature art form is selected by The Wearable Art Show committee and challenges the designers to create a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art that incorporates the selected medium. The artists are challenged to push their creativity to inspiring levels.
In addition to guest judges, show attendees are invited to vote for their favourite item.
There are 2 awards for the Artist Challenge:
The challenge is ‘Interwoven’ and the artists are invited to explore ‘weaving’ in their medium or ‘weaving’ their skills with another artist or two.
Hand woven and then hand painted by
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.
