Win an workshop for two with cool Amersham-based gallery ArtBag, worth £350!

Reader Treats

We’ve been shouting about Amersham’s super-cool ArtBag Studio to anyone who’ll listen – Central Saint Martins alumna Debra creates beautiful handbag sculptures (above) filled with personal treasures frozen in glossy resin. The sculptures cost big bucks (we’re talking thousands) and have been exhibited all over the world including New York Fashion Week and the Coca-Cola museum in Atlanta. Wowzers!

If you fancy getting your mitts on an ArtBag, but they’re a leetle bit out of your price range, then you’re in luck as Debra is now hosting bespoke workshops to give people the chance to create their own funky framed ArtBag (check out this awesome example above). You’ll need to bring along small items and photos that you’ll freeze inside a bag mould. Your personalised piece of art will then be framed ready to hang on the wall.

You likey? We’re offering one Muddy reader and a plus one the chance to each make an ArtBag wall hanging, a prize worth £350. We think they look super-cool and unique and would make an ideal wedding gift or birthday present.
