All Washed Up

Hosted by the Vermilion Arts Guild and sponsored by Key Bank of Vermilion, 4700 Liberty Avenue, and Executive Cleaners, 4644 Liberty Avenue. Main Street Vermilion thanks them for their continued support of our organization, events and activities.


Now what?

Driftwood. It washes ashore bringing beauty and mystery. How long has it been making its way to us...and from where? Driftwood is free, abundant, natural and inspiring. No wonder so many artists, sculptors, carvers and craters enjoy with working with such a fun, inspiring material!

All Washed Up Vermilion’s First Driftwood Art Contest. Here’s your opportunity to create something unique using materials found in abundance on local beaches.

Here are the details…

When: Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 10AM-4PM

Where: Friendship Park, in the heart of downtown Vermilion at Liberty Avenue and Grand Street.

Who: Sponsored by the Vermilion Arts Guild, a program of Main Street Vermilion

Cost: Fun for free!

Who should enter?

Anyone. Everyone! All ages and abilities are invited to have fun creating something original to share.

What do I have to do?

Get to the beach! Start gathering driftwood and thinking about what you can make with it. Spring is a great time to “shop for driftwood before the beaches are cleaned for summer visitors.

Can I work in a team?

Yes! With friends, as a neighborhood, a family, a church, a company or a club. The more, the merrier.

I’ve never worked with driftwood? Help!

The Vermilion Arts Guild will host Driftwood 101: How to Get Ready for ALL WASHED UP!. Choose from eight FREE demo/workshops his summer that will show you how to turn all those sticks, chips and chunks of driftwood into something display worthy!

Conducted by Tim Balda and Tom Winiasz, each experience wood artists, they’ll demonstrate how best to prepare driftwood and then work with it using basic tools found around the house. Once you've seen how it's done you can get hands-on to create a simple make-and-take project.
