For more than 25 years, Creative Matters' talented and inspired designers have been working with interior designers and architects to create exceptional floor and wall coverings for luxury hotels, boutique retailers, stylish offices, elegant homes and diplomatic missions around the world.
The Toronto company hosts regular themed Art Day activities for the staff to keep the creative juices flowing.
Company founder Carol Sebert explains:
"In an industry where we can get too accustomed to using a computer to create artworks, it was refreshing to return to our roots and pick up a paintbrush. We allow ourselves absolute freedom to create new artworks as motifs for new carpet designs."
Art Days begin when Creative Matters picks a medium and a theme and let their imaginations soar, resulting in unique carpet ideas. The Art Days workshops at DOMOTEX offer visitors the opportunity to create a fresh design of their own under the keynote theme UNIQUE YOUNIVERSE . Up to eight participants per workshop will have an hour experiment with pastel, charcoal, ink and wax resist on paper. The process is always a lot of fun and it will give participants an insight into the complexities and nuance of rug design. Workshops are available throughout the whole period of DOMOTEX.
The Art Day workshops of Creative Matters will be taking place on the Framing Trends Area in hall 9, stand number 5. Workshops will be available from Friday to Sunday from 10:30-11:30, 13:30-14:30 and 15:30-16:30. On Monday the workshop takes place from 10:30-11.30.
There are limited places available on this workshops, so be in with the chance of starting your own design using a unique process. Please email Ms Alina Okolot (contact see below) to book your place on Art Day stating your favourite time during the show.
