Call for Submissions – Fabric, Paper, Create!

Paper,Fabric,Create logo

We had such a good time with our March Mail Art Madness, we decided to bring you a brand new art call for submissions this fall. The “Fabric, Paper, Create!” art call will be held from August 1 to October 8 and will receive a grand prize of $50 to Two Hands Paperie and $50 to Fabricate. First place in each of the four categories will also receive prizes from Two Hands Paperie and Fabricate, including Peerless Watercolors, decorative paper, gift certificates, and more!

Two Hands Paperie and Fabricate are providing the building blocks for you to create something wonderful. Come in to one of the stores and pick up an envelope with fabric and scraps to create a work of art. You may submit artwork in the following categories: 2-D Art, 3-D Art, and Wearable Art. You can enter up to one piece in each category. For anyone under the age of 12, an adult can submit your entry into the Kid’s category.

Scrap Pack

There is no cost to enter, and your first paper and fabric scrap pack is FREE! Additional scrap packs are $3.50 (cash or check only). All proceeds from the scrap packs will be donated to A Monster to Love. We welcome you to make any additional donations at any time. (If you aren’t familiar with this awesome Colorado based company run by a dad and his twin sons, you should really check them out.)

Submissions will be juried by the fabulously creative duo from the Makerie,  Ali DeJohn and Emily Clark. Each category will be judged on the creative use and incorporation of the paper and fabric scraps. Winners will be announced at Two Hands Paperie’s 20th Anniversary Celebration on October 18th at 6:00 pm. (Let me tell you, this anniversary party isn’t something you want to miss. Cupcake decorating, mask making, community art creating, prize winning, and general merriment will all take place! Mark your calendars and help us celebrate our 20 years in Boulder.)
