Dressed to ‘Kilt’ - this is our ‘open’ section. Choose your own theme or concept and create extravagant, completely ‘over the top’ tartan Wearable Art. Create artworks that transcend the every day … indulge your senses with unrestrained excessiveness…. anything goes, so let your fancy take flight.
McKiwi – Explore the synergy, the similarities and the differences between Celtic and Pacific Cultures.
Fireside - Explore the Celtic Stories of the ‘otherworld’, the rich resource of Celtic mythology and Scottish faerie tales, with its supernatural creatures!
The Celts were tribal warriors who inhabited large areas of Europe but ended up associated with the lands of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Brittany. They were poetic, religious and superstitious, with a deep connection to the earth and its mysteries – they adored story telling - explore the people of the ancient ‘Standing Stones’, the Bardic sagas of Beowolf, and inter-tribal rivalry and conquest!
Masks (children’s section) - Create a mask inspired by all things Celtic – ghosites, Kelpies, giants, and brownies - to proportions only limited to your model’s body size!
Brave Heart – don’t think of Mel Gibson! The true Brave Heart is the person who brings courage to the challenges of day to day living. A Brave Heart transforms the mundane into the extraordinary.
The Engine Room - The Scots were ‘the Engine room’ of the British Empire - they were the engineers and architects; they were innovators and problem solvers. You could stick your head in any engine room of any ship in the world, call out ‘Jock’ and someone would answer you!
This is our call to all you blokes and blokettes to turn your mind and hand to a wearable construction.
