Make a lasting lei
With so many special occasions approaching, from Mother's Day to graduations, there's no time like now to learn how to make a lasting eyelash lei that can be worn any time to dress up any garment. The Bishop Museum will be offering three Sunday workshops this month.
Dorothy Sakamoto will lead the four-hour workshops involving basic crochet techniques and wispy eyelash yarn. Crochet experience is helpful but not necessary. Students of all ages are welcome, although classes are limited to 10 students.
Classes run 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, and on March 12 and 19. The workshop fee is $35 and includes all materials and instruction.
Call 216-1970 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wanted: fabric design
As part of its 50th-anniversary celebration, Tori Richard Ltd. is sponsoring a print design contest open to all Hawaii-based artists.
First prize is $3,000, and the winning design will be considered for inclusion in Tori Richard's Fall 2007 collection.
Second prize is $1,000; third prize is $500.
Artists are invited to submit work based on their interpretation of the theme, "Mediterranean meets the Pacific," coinciding with the company's aura of exotic destinations and belief in the "sophistication and culture that comes from a well-traveled lifestyle."
All artwork must be submitted on slides: one of the full piece, one in detail, with the design measuring no more than 36 inches in any direction.
Two-dimensional artwork in any medium is accepted, as well as embellishments such as embroidery, appliqué, beading or sequins. A total of 25 finalists will be selected to submit actual artwork for the final decision. Winners will be announced in late August.
Submissions are due by Aug. 1 and will be judged by a committee of Tori Richard executives and artists. Entry forms and specifications are available at all Tori Richard retail stores (Ala Moana, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Hyatt Regency Waikiki and the Shops at Wailea on Maui) or online at www.toririchard.com.
