Wearable Arts Mandurah

The Wearable Art Mandurah Showcase presents the finest wearable art from across Australia and beyond through a highly entertaining stage performance. This full-length production promises to delight the audience, incorporating a sense of play, musicality and theatricality, while presenting spectacular wearable art.

WAFTA is pleased to sponsor the Tertiary Student Award and encourages all members to attend.

The Sunday matinee still has good seats available, and as well as the showcase the South Metropolitan TAFE fashion and floristry students will be exhibiting 18 wearable art garments in a free exhibition.  Due to a capacity crowd in 2016, two shows are being staged:

Saturday 10 June at 6.30 pm: Wearable Art Mandurah Awards Showcase
Sunday 11 June at 2.30 pm: Wearable Art Mandurah Showcase

To view a one minute clip of last year’s show, go to the WAM Website

Tickets are available from Mandurah Performing Arts Centre, in person at the Box Office, or by phone on (08) 9550 3900.

Who we are

The Western Australian Fibre and Textile Association (WAFTA) was founded in 1995 and is a dynamic and progressive group with passion, enthusiasm and talent that reflects the growing interest and appreciation of textile and fibre art within the community.

WAFTA’s members include both established and emerging artists who between them employ a diverse range and combination of fibre and textile processes incorporating combinations of traditional, contemporary and experimental techniques. There is also an increasing crossover of textiles and other mediums, with glass, digital print, digital projection, ceramics, metal and the natural environment – to name but a few.

WAFTA’s objectives include increasing the understanding of the potential of fibre and textiles through exhibition, whilst encouraging the highest standard of design and craftsmanship.
