Altered States is the new WAFTA Members’ Exhibition for 2017 which is taking the form of a challenge. It will open on September 15, 2017 and run until 23 September, 2017 in the foyer of Perth Town Hall on Hay Street Perth.

The entry fee of $50 gets you your bag of materials for the challenge and submission of one artwork into the exhibition.

All your materials will be in the bag.  Your challenge is to create absolutely anything you wish, be it 2D or 3D, within a 30×30 or 30x30x30cm size using the contents of the bag.  You may only submit one artwork per bag.  You may use as much or as little of all of the materials as you need.  Threads, glues, dyes and armatures may be included, but no additional materials.

All artworks must be submitted by the Members’ Meeting on August 15th.

Bags will be available for purchase until the May 16th Members’ Meeting.

To find out all about this exciting challenge, and all of the workshops we are planning to inspire you, come to the Launch at the WAFTA Members’ Meeting at Craft House on MARCH 28th.
