with St Kitts
DESCRIBE THE ARTS SCENE
St. Kitts is a bright, vibrant and colourful island, and how better to express this than through art? From woodcarving to pottery to fashion and jewelry we take inspiration from our beautiful surroundings.
TELL US ABOUT IFLAMBOYANT
Now in its fifth year, Iflamboyant is an arts, crafts and fashion exhibition that aims to promote and showcase local talent. This year's event will take place at Park Hyatt St. Kitts from 30 November until 2 December and we are expecting around 45 artists.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I like texture and often use the print of the fern tree and course sand from the beach. My pottery reflects the sea meeting the shore, which gives a sense of calmness. I'm going to be launching a therapy pottery class in November – trust me there's nothing more therapeutic than moulding wet clay!
CAN TOURISTS BUY THE ART?
Of course! Every piece is handmade and one of a kind. Visitors love to have something that reminds them of their holidays. Buying a piece of art is like taking home a small piece of St. Kitts.
WHY VISIT ST. KITTS AND NEVIS?
There's a great sense of community in St. Kitts - we're like one big family and invite visitors into our home to experience our warm hospitality.
