Earlier this year we had a little contest where we asked customers to come up with ideas for Mirrix-woven pieces incorporating our hand-painted silk. We then chose two people to whom we gave free silk to go forward with their ideas. We were blown away by the incredible pieces our winners Julie and Debbie made and we’ve decided to run the same contest again.
Here are the pieces from last time (click here to learn a little more about each one):
Fish Tapestry by Julie Lipscomb Atkinson
Travel Pouch by Debbie Thompson
Here are the details: On June 10th we will choose two Mirrix customers to give free hand-painted silk (6 skeins) t0. In exchange, we ask those customers to share with us what they make with the silk so we can share their work with the rest of you!
We are looking for fun, creative projects. You may use any other materials in your project (whatever you want!) and techniques other than weaving, as long the majority of the project is woven.
Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a few sentences describing what you’d like to make with the silk. Also note which size loom you’ll be using and give your full name and mailing address.
On Wednesday June 10th, 2015 we will choose two people to send the silk to, based on your plans to use the silk. We will then send those people silk.
Sometime in the next two months, we will feature the projects that each customer makes with their silk on our blog!
The Fine Print (that you should really read):
By entering, you agree to make a project using the silk you are given before July 18th, 2015. You also agree to send us (high quality) pictures and information about the project. You agree to let us use those photographs on our blog, website and social media sites. We will, of course, attribute your work to you.
