Part of the Arrowtown Autumn Festival, the Art 2 Wear show is one of the most popular ticketed events. Local designers compete in one of four categories to produce the best Art 2 Wear fashion.

These entries are now on display at the Lakes District Museum & Gallery from the 30th May until the 15th June 2014. A visit to this exhibition could provide inspiration for fabric and technology units at your school. Viewing this exhibition could also provide a valuable learning experience for examining the design process and for appreciating different forms of art.

Which is your favourite piece?

The materials used to create these garments are very unusual. Some of these include rat skulls, bubble wrap, birds nests, wire, divorce papers, and marriage certificates! Why do you think the designers use such interesting materials?
