Annick Faubert and Candide LeCourtois withe their award for Reverence

Raglan Art to Wear runs every two years in May. The shows attract a large number of entries, mostly from Raglan but also from Hamilton and the greater Waikato.

The next Raglan Art to Wear is in 2016. It will be held in the Raglan Town Hall on Saturday 4th June.

Tickets for Raglan Art to Wear shows in the Town Hall are sold out.

BUT:

Raglan Art to Wear Live Feed:  if you missed out on tickets to this year’s Art To Wear Awards, taking place at the Raglan Town Hall on Saturday 4 June, don’t fret – you can still catch all the action live at the Raglan Old School. The Old School will be hosting a cocktail-style evening featuring streaming from the 7pm show, canapes and refreshments, plus live music from Kate Martin, Jo Artemis and Wandering Dulcet. Raglan Art to Wear takes place every two years and attracts a large number of highly-creative entries from Raglan and the greater Waikato. Live shows take place at the Raglan Town Hall at 2pm and 7pm. Because seating space is limited in the Town Hall, ticket demand has always outweighed availability, hence the introduction of the Old School event. The Old School Live Feed gets underway at 6pm on Saturday 4 June. Cocktail dress is optional. Tickets are available from the Raglan iSite and cost $20 per person.

The event is deliberately planned for winter to attract visitors to the town when it’s quiet, although it wasn’t always that way – it was originally the grand finale to the annual arts-focused summer schools based at the Old School Arts Centre in Stewart Street.”

The 2016 categories are:

  1. Re-Cycled = On the Re-Bound (open)
  2. Colour = Red: Scarlet Fever (open)
  3. JRR Tolken = Middle Earth (open)
  4. Children up to 13 years = Wild By Nature
