Highlands Wearable Arts

Our Wearable Arts Competition is still all Go! (Unlike the Wellington WOW, which is really disappointing)

So get creative and get your costumes made. We are looking for some amazing entries this year as you have had a lot of time to spend making these entries. You still have plenty of time to get underway as entries do not have to be in until Week 4 of Term 4, with the competition in Week 5. I’m looking forward to seeing all of the amazing creations.

Start collecting all sorts of recyclable items e.g milk bottle tops, wine tops, bottle tops, tubes from toilet rolls or paper towel rolls, buttons, plastic bottles….. the list is endless.

Visit your local Hospice and up-cycle interesting items. Let your imagination run wild and it is incredible to see what results from inexpensive but creative minds.

Pinterest or Google has amazing ideas on how to make simple decorations e.g flowers and other decorative features, so take a look and be inspired!
