Shearwater is thrilled to announce the launch of WAVE 2023: The Gatekeeper, the 23rd year of the Mullumbimby Steiner School’s Wearable Arts performance event and they are calling all design artists, fashion innovators, culture initiators and wearable inventors to join them.
WAVE is a major annual event in Shearwater’s performing arts calendar, showcasing wearable artworks entered by designers and students from around Australia, in a highly professional, choreographed production that encompasses design, music, dance, drama and technology.
Whether you are an emerging artist, a student, an industry professional or a wearable arts savant, it’s time to unleash your creative design skills and begin to imagine your costume entry for WAVE 2023. Entries will be assessed by a panel of independent judges and vie for a prize pool of up to $8,000.
This year, Shearwater’s textiles educators are offering two free workshops to community members who want to design and enter a garment in this year’s competition – learn how to make a work of wearable art and the best materials and tools to use, as well as more industry tips.
The first workshop is on this Saturday at Shearwater Steiner School, 349 Left Bank Rd, Mullumbimby. For more details call 66 843 223 or email [email protected]
