4. Deadline Reminders

Heallreaf 3 – Deadline Reminder.

The 26th May deadline for entries into Heallreaf 3 is approaching fast.
This years exhibition is promising to be the best with work up to 2 metres x 2 metres accepted, but that doesn’t mean the jurors will dismiss the smaller works. These are just as important to 21st Century tapestry weaving. Once again we have a £500 Heallreaf Prize for the piece picked by the jurors as ‘best in show’ and a £250 Peoples Prize sponsored by Weavers Bazaar. This will be chosen by visitors to the two shows and awarded at the end of the London show.

Dates and Venues:
6th – 21st September in Nottingham at Surface Gallery.
15th – 26th October in London at Espacio Gallery.
