You could star at AQC! Announcing a mini textile art challenge: Self Portrait

We invite you to depict yourself, in textiles.

What is a Self Portrait? Not to be confused with a selfie, a self-portrait is intended as an exploration of your face, body and personality. It may show your style, document important things in your life, or show your style and skill. It may even have include another person as well.

We’ve seen your wonderful pet portraits (in 2016), now let’s get a look at you!

Abstract, pictorial, or interpretive – we’ll accept all entries.

Traditional and contemporary works using techniques including patchwork, embroidery, appliqué, surface design, photo transfer, printing and so on will all be considered. The entry may depict you at any age.

Finalists will be selected to be displayed at the Australasian Quilt Convention (AQC) 2019 and at Craft & Quilt Fairs across the year. Deadline for online entries is February 21, 2019.
