Palmer Canvas gets in on the act

 

The Whangarei company manufactures a huge variety of structures and wares made out of canvas and synthetic textiles – from awnings and shade sails, to canopies, tents, truck curtains, biminis, and tarpaulins.

Warwick is well known as the concept brains behind the Cloud on the Waterfront in Auckland. Those who saw the huge yellow Duckie floating on the harbour would see his handiwork there too.

As a director of Palmer Canvas, and a local resident, Warwick is keen to be part of his surrounding community and on hearing of the Wearable Arts event could see the potential for entrants to use remnants and off-cuts. He is thrilled to see this material recycled into entries in a local production that is growing in stature every year.

As a result there will be a large bag of canvas of all descriptions and sizes held at the Waipu Museum where entrants may go to forage for product with which to weave their magic into exhibits for this year’s event in June.

This material may appeal to the men who are thinking of entering the new category “The Engine Room” as there is sure to be something robust in the collection of canvas that they can usefully up-cycle into their exhibit.

Entry forms and canvas are available from the Waipu Museum and all other information can be found on their website waipumuseum.com.
