Scheduled for Sunday May 12thth , Arts in the Olives Festival will have a “Textiles and Textures” emphasis in 2013.
<Winner of the 2012 Caldera Art Award – Therese Flynn Clark – will guide students to discover the textures within basketry – a medium ideally suited to this environment as materials can be gathered in close proximity; and the creative talents of Sandra Pearce will inspire students working in making original prints with her Magical Monotypes workshops.
Textile artist Bec Anderson will focus the groups on 3 styles of creative rugmaking, and the blacksmiths will again beat beautiful shapes from hot iron with Gilbert Loutit.
Local potters promise expert guidance in fashioning clay and cloth into objects of beauty. They will work with adults and children and the children need pay only for materials.
Following the Arts In The Olives tradition, 2013 will again see free tuition for all Children’s workshops with some requiring a charge for materials. The textile theme will see budding young designers learning to recycle and reinvent fashion with Nancy .
<An excellent music programme is in the pipeline for 2013 and stalls will offer beautiful hand made goods and local or organic produce. Food offerings promise to be delicious.
