Embrace your inner fashion designer at Bank of Hawaii’s Family Sunday taking place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. this weekend at the Honolulu Academy of Arts, where the theme is "Woman of the Cloth."
Inspired by the textile exhibition "Embroidered and Embellished: The Margaret Brewer Fowler Collection," now on view at the academy, the event will feature art activities, entertainment, demonstrations of fabric dyeing, viewing of the beauty of Polynesian textiles, and more.
A cutting contest will allow contestants to show off their skills in taking scissors to a T-shirt to create their own work of art.
And there will be a "Project Runway"-style contest during which teams of two will be given 30 minutes and unique materials to sketch, design and complete an outfit. One team member will model the design for the audience, which will determine the winner.
Youths ages 1 to 17 can enter a drawing contest, with a prize of a Family Level membership to the academy (worth $95), with the winning artwork to grace next month’s event brochure.
Admission is free. Call 532-8700 for more information.
