The major annual event in Shearwater’s performing arts calendar, WAVE (Wearable Arts Vision in Education) is on again, November 2 till 5, at the school on Left Bank Road, Mullumbimby Creek.
Organisers say the wearable artworks entered by designers and students from around Australia is presented in a ‘highly professional, choreographed production that encompasses design, music, dance, drama and technology’.
More than fashion
‘Much more than mere fashion, wearable artworks are manifestations of the maker’s inner world of imagination’.
‘They can be sewn, constructed, glued, painted, collaged, riveted, woven and knitted.
‘They can be made from metals, recycled found objects, silk, rubber, natural fibres, industrial offcuts or whatever substance can be sculptured, coaxed, charmed and, if required, bent by the will of the artist’.
