HOLDING HANDS: commemorative tote project

As part of Craft Victoria’s 40th anniversary celebrations we have commissioned Dell Stewart (who currently has an exhibition in Gallery 2) and Adam Cruickshank (who exhibited earlier this year) to design a limited edition commemorative tote bag.

Their design features two hands, one drawn by Dell and one drawn by Adam, reflecting their history of collaboration in art and life, as well as a shared interest and support of all things handmade. Just like Craft Victoria.

To coincide with the release of the limited edition tote we’re running a special competition inviting people to customize the bag. Think jewels, tattoos and accessories, drawn, stitched, pasted, painted printed, pierced, transferred, bedazzled, sequinned etc... The list is virtually endless.

The winner will receive Professional Membership of Craft Victoria for one year and a $100 gift voucher from COUNTER, the runner up will receive a $50 gift voucher and the best entry from a child 12 years and under will receive a special Craft Victoria Craft Kit valued at $50. So get those kiddies working!

All entries will be showcased in an online image gallery on the Craft Victoria website, and the winners will be announced at the Craft Victoria 40th Anniversary dinner, Thu 17 June.

The totes will be available in store and online from today(!) onwards and entries for the competition close Fri 11 June. It will be judged by the lovely artists, Adam and Dell, as well as Craft Victoria staff.

There are only 200 totes available, so make sure you drop by quick-snap if you don't want to miss out on this tote-ally awesome bag!
