The Jersey Eisteddfod Festival of the creative arts is back in 2022.
Entries in the Needlework & Textile Art section will vary from the smallest knitted creature to king-size quilts, and from the beginner to the experienced crafter. The syllabus is available from local craft shops, the Jersey Arts Centre and the Jersey Eisteddfod website.
The Adult and Youth Art & Craft section is anticipating a particularly healthy number of entries in 2022. The theme – Earth, Wind and Fire – should give plenty of scope for creative interpretation by both art and craft entrants.
There will be nine classes in the Floral Art section, including Junior and Novice. Open classes will range from small to large exhibits, meaning there is a class to suit everyone of all abilities.
Syllabi and entry dates are available on the Jersey Eisteddfod website for Needlework & Textile Art, Photography, Floral Art, Handwriting & Calligraphy, Adult and Youth Art & Craft, and Schools Art & Craft.
Christine Hamon, General Administrator of the Jersey Eisteddfod, said: “Although the festival could not take place this year, would-be entrants have been busy with their various pieces of work, so much so that each section’s syllabus has had to be expanded to cope with the extra demand.”
Noel McLaughlin, Managing Director of Butterfield in Jersey, said: “I am very happy that the Jersey Eisteddfod festival of the creative arts is able to take place next year, and we’re looking forward to islanders showing off their creativity in such varied sections. At Butterfield we value our community, and are pleased to play our part in staging such a popular event.”
