DE­SCRIBE THE ARTS SCENE

1

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

2

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?

3

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?

4

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?

5

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.
