Foundations Revealed Contest 2020 : Renewal

#foundationsrevealedcontest2020

 Cherry blossom flowers 1

 

Mythologies and legends of rebirth and restoration abound across the world. From the phoenix rising from the ashes to the Goddess Flora heralding Spring, delve into the patterns, textures and stories of traditional sagas. The circular economy shows us a life cycle: rebirth of worn out things, given new life and purpose.

FR Contest 2020: Mood board "Renewal"

Our Members chose this year's theme from three possibilities that all reflect sustainability, recycling and upcycling. How can we textile artists be a part of the solution, rather than part of the problem, when it comes to waste and toxic practices? We encourage you to look at this theme in addition to Renewal as an extra source of ideas to incorporate into your entry this year. Natural dyes, recycled plastics, utilising fabric scraps - everyone can do something to be a creative part of the solution! Additional mood board: "Upcycling and Sustainability"

What people are saying about entering the Contest

For anyone on the fence next year, I would say that simply making the time for yourself to make something for the contest is an act of self-care... no matter the result, that's always a worthwhile thing.

Maeri Certo, 2018 entrant

 

It has been a challenging learning experience and a great opportunity to think outside the box and grow as a maker... Go go go!

Cristiane Tano, 2018 winner

 

It's been an amazing journey, with friends along the way... This feels much more like joining an exhibition than competing. Go for it!

Jalea Ward, 2018 winner

 

It has been exhilarating to enter the competition and work on my entry. I would like everyone who is on the fence about entering to be bold.
To allow themselves to create, without censoring their creative brain. To be brave and share their work.

Marloes Dadswell, 2018 winner

 

Do it! It's fabulous!
