Sue Welford always has her camera with her, and has taken some fabulous shots of behind the scenes at the Waipu Museum ArtnTartan Wearable Arts Awards
There are fifty – seven entrants in this year’s Art’ n Tartan Wearable Art Awards, which will be held on Saturday 16 as a grand finale to this year’s Tartan Week in Waipu celebrations. A full dress rehearsal for the show has already been held, but if you thought you wanted a ticket, you may be out of luck. Tickets to the Waipu Art’ n Tartan show went on sale on Monday 20 June, and the evening show was sold out in 10 minutes, a few matinee tickets remain, and those who have missed out can go on the waiting list at the Waipu Museum.
