In previous years the craft section has been so popular with so many entries we have overflowed! So this year we have separated out soft such as embroidery, quilts and lace from hard materials wood, wicker and metal. We have asked the judges what they look for and this is what they said:
‘When judging I look for originality whilst still keeping within the brief. I take a brief look at the class and see what captures my attention, as well as showing an imaginative use of materials and ideas. The piece should stand out and show passion’.
‘The materials used must be appropriate for the project as are the colours selected. I am looking for a good use of texture and shape, the quality of workmanship and use of technique. The presentation and completed work must be neatly finished and made to last.’
The art section is as previous years and the judge told us ‘I will be looking mainly for an image that indicates the artist understands design within the boarders so that it is easy on the eye, in other words it balances nicely. It could contain a recognisable subject or just beautiful colours arranged in an excellent design, in other words an abstracted image. The same comments apply to three D objects, good design, good colour and a degree of craftmanship’.
We know there are lots of artist and crafts people in the village so let’s make this the best show yet.
