One question: Can Itake a picture to enter this contest?

MyntKat Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
This is an artisan crafts contest, not a photography contest. If you take a picture, it would have to be a picture of a craft that you made yourself.

I´ve probably used a wrong term.
But, if you would write German, I would get on certainly also wrongly. :D

Aaah... eine deutsche Kanadierin. Oder eine kanadische Deutsche?
Also ist ein mit Pinsel und Farbe gemaltes Bild nicht erlaubt, weil es nicht in den Bereich Kunsthandwerk gehört?

Eine Deutsche in Kanada ;)
Korrekt, Pinsel und Farbe gehören nicht zum Kunsthandwerk.

:iconattila-g:
Attila-G Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2010
Mmmmh... also darf ein Töpfer oder ein Bildhauer seine Objekte nicht mit Pinsel und Farbe anmalen!? :D

Was hat Dich eigentlich nach Kanada verschlagen?

:iconmyntkat:
MyntKat Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Nah, solange er das getöpferte oder gebildhauerte Werk selbst hergestellt hat ist es doch ein Kunsthandwerk, da sind die Pinsel dann auch ok. :D

i perused all the comments but couldn't seem to find a satisfactory explanation... why are carved pumpkins disallowed? DA certainly considers them an artisan craft (artisan craft > culinary arts > pumpkin carving). any explanation would do really, just as long as it isn't blatant prejudice :(

with that said, consider this: [link]

would something like that be different enough to be considered in the running?
