  1. Hi there…. quick question… the post says All works must be on a 12 inch x 12 inch square canvas , but then says Collage material and/or mixed media must be contained within the canvas dimensions : so, does that mean the work does not ‘have’ to be on canvas as long as it is within the 12 x 12 dimensions? Thanks 🙂

    1. I have no idea Dawn but I am guessing it needs to be the canvas dimensions. So if you made something from clay, so long as they can hang it like a 12 x 12 square it should be ok. Best you contact Jan Synot as she will be able to tell you what is required. Deirdre
