Description

Fabulous, unique wearable art sale, Saturday, October 28, 2017

ArtWear Ottawa is having their annual show and sale of unique, hand-made wearable art clothes and accessories on Saturday, October 28, 2017. If you like one-of-a-kind, hand crafted clothes and accessories -- dresses, coats, jewellery, handbags -- this is the place for you! The event will take place at Kitchissippi United Church, 630 Island Park Drive, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Above is one of the interesting items that will be for sale -- a fleece jacket, pieced. Machine washable. These jackets are so cosy and warm for the winter. This one fits medium to large, but smaller sizes will be available. More examples of items can be see on ArtWear Ottawa's website and Facebook pages: http://pcweb.ca/livegalleries/ArtWear and https://www.facebook.com/ArtWearOttawa/

Members of ArtWear Ottawa use a wide range of materials, such as hand-dyed silks, fine woollens and unique designer fabrics to create their wares, which are often further embellished with dyeing techniques, hand or machine embroidery, beads and other creative finishes. Some members “upcycle”, to create environmentally friendly novel designs. Still other members use silver and semi-precious stones to create funky but elegant jewellery. Distinctive necklaces, earrings, brooches, bracelets and even hand-dyed scarves make wonderful holiday gifts!

ArtWear Ottawa members have a variety of experience. Some are professionally trained in design and haute couture techniques, while others are self-taught. Nevertheless, all are dedicated to creating finely crafted one-of-a-kind wearable art that is both sophisticated and functional

The Annual ArtWear Ottawa Show and Sale will also display a gallery of items that members have made. Entry is free and door prizes will be drawn at random.

See the ArtWear Ottawa website and Facebook pages for some examples of items for sale: http://pcweb.ca/livegalleries/ArtWear and https://www.facebook.com/ArtWearOttawa/
