I was invited by Pam Thorne from the Burnie Arts Council to run a paper dress making workshop in the lead up to the inaugural ‘Paper on Skin’ competition held at the Burnie Regional Art Gallery in Tasmania. I was invited back to judge the entrant’s work on the night of the parade. Burnie is a pretty seaside town with a strong tradition in making handmade paper and the community rallied to make the parade a success. Local girls who had studied at the town’s modelling school wore the dresses. I met some wonderful people at the workshop; many of whom developed their designs for the competition. A delightful event to be a part of.
The entire parade can be viewed on Jessica Turale’s photography site.
