FROM 23RD TO 26TH MARCH ABILMENTE PRIMAVERA RETURNS TO VICENZA THE LEADING NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL HANDCRAFT EXHIBITION
What can be achieved with a crochet hook and some thread? The
Association “Sul Filo dell’Arte” is set
to organise an extraordinary 3D installation entitled ‘Omaggio a Guernica’
(Homage to Guernica): a crochet recreation of one of the twentieth century's
most symbolic works of art.
The 2017 edition of Abilmente
is set to feature numerous innovations
in terms of set-up. The event shall be divided into two areas: Hall 7 shall become the “Factory of Dreams”, a place of desire,
a magical cauldron where you can find all you need to unleash your passions. Hall 1, with “Remember Me”, shall become the perfect place for making all
memories unique and indelible, through the finest the market has to offer in
terms of colours, stencils, home décor, washi tape, stamps.
But there's more: as of this year Abilmente shall be organised
around Islands of Creativity,
areas in which a sea of different ideas converge in spaces of inspiration
featuring ideas and materials, and above all where it shall be possible to try
things out and experiment, during laboratories,
workshops and direct contact with the sector's most famous creative professionals and bloggers.
Prominent figures at this edition include Joyce Escano, winner of
the last edition of Bake Off Italia, who shall present her new recipe book and
demonstrate some of her creations during a cooking show.
