paper on skin

Community Event

19 Jun 2020

‘paper on skin’ connects Burnie’s papermaking heritage to a community of international artists who embrace the challenge of designing a wearable garment made from at least 80% paper.
Art lovers from around the country travel to experience this showcase of spectacular wearables at our Gala Event and Award Evening. The impact and appeal of this unique medium are reflected in the visceral audience response. paper on skin firmly establishes Burnie as a centre of cultural excellence. Excitement builds as the judges make their decision only after seeing the spectacular live parade. You will never take paper for granted again!
