Four local arts and crafts lovers have come together to work on a project in collaboration with SPCA/happy paws and Patches. Denise Scicluna, Maria Muscat (Babettopolis), Sarah Micallef and Carla Said picked a couple of items each, from the donated stuff at Happy Paws charity shop in Sliema and transformed them into crafted works of art.
One of the selected items which caught REDWHITEmt ‘s attention was a shelf set by Denise Scicluna. When picked from the charity shop it was plain white but it was then decorated with Denise’s distinct illustrations featuring dogs and cats. That’s why she titled her piece “Raining cats and dogs”. Umbrellas, rain, clouds as well as fish bones are some of the many detailed illustrations on this small piece of furniture.
Most of the finished items feature an animal theme, specifically cats and dogs, and each is documented in the respective artist’s blog. These creations will be showcased during Patches; the indoor market at Is Suq tal-Belt, in Valletta on Sunday 27th November from 1030am onwards, in aid of SPCA/Happy Paws.
