Day 4 - Report

29 March – Day 4 Paper Market

Today was another highlight of the congress. On this day we collaborated with the Burnie City Council to promote our IAPMA paper market and a Burnie ‘Makers market’ that occurred when there happened to be cruise ship passengers in town. We promoted the market fully to cruise ship passengers and the local community, which resulted in a very successful day for paper makers, IAPMA and artists of Burnie. The Civic Centre was swarming with people and the quality of work was spectacular.

There was also a community paper dress design competition run by the Burnie City Council which was on display during this day.

In addition to the market there were demonstrations by local artists and by paper kite Maker from France Therese Uguen, Ritchie Ares Dona (Brisbane) and Hideyo (Golden Valley, TAS) as well as an activity station for IAPMA delegates to work with local Tasmanian fibres and paper to contribute to a congress collage. It was a busy well visited event that was successful artistically and financially!
