2010 group winners: Janine Morris and Pam Thorne with their winning design

Time is running out.

The 2011 Paper Clothing Competition is on again. Last year, over 33 life size garments made completely from paper were judged at the Makers’ Workshop.

Burnie City Council Community Development Officer Allison Daley said, “This year we have a new category, where people can also enter a handmade paper mask. Some people may be a little daunted by making a life size clothing garment, so creating a mask is a great way to start for anyone new to creating products from paper.”

All entries for the 2011 Paper Clothing and Paper Mask Competition must be made from paper based products.

“This could include using toilet paper, fast food wrappers, lolly wrappers or even bottle labels. As long as it’s paper, you can enter your mask or clothing outfit in the competition.”
Completed entries are to be received at the Makers’ Workshop at 2 Bass Highway, from Monday 23 May through to Friday 27 May. Early or late entries will not be accepted.

“You can enter as an individual or get the whole family working on a design and enter as a group. It’s not an easy task and time is running out. Make sure you start working on your design today,” Mrs Daley said.

All entries will be on display inside the Makers’ Workshop throughout June.
