Stretching the Art Challenge canvas to use different media…

Art Challenge Wales started out as a competition to draw or paint in one day… As we have spoken to people it’s clear that artists would like to create very different things in one day!

One of the people was Pencoed-based artist Sophie Wilcox. In early April 2015 Sophie created a crochet bridge for LookUp in Bridgend.

Sophie feels confident that she could prepare a textiles piece so we’ve decided to widen the entrants to anything that can be created in a day, is a maximum of 2 metres squared and can lie flat on a table so we can photograph it. This opens up the possibility for crochet, textiles or even sculpture!
