The winners of our Facebook competition will receive a ukulele and a guaranteed spot. If you don’t win and you’d like to participate, you can buy your Mahalo ‘Rainbow Series’ ukulele from Morris Brothers in the Music Market and join one of the sessions.

Your design can be as simple or complex as you like… just as long as you can complete it in 2 hours!

Check out this video.

The artist is Jenni Onn, Illustrator and Creative Director of our advertising sponsor Creative Traveller Magazine. Jenni created ‘The Moonlight Mermaid Uke’ in just one hour and 4 pens!  For those who need a little inspiration Jenni has also created some additional designs exclusively for SPRUKE Art.

We’ll take a pic of all our artists with their ukuleles at the SPRUKE Selfie Frame and share on our Instagram feed @SprukeFestival for your ultimate bragging rights #sprukeart #sprukefestival.

You don’t have to be able to play but you might want to learn with your unique new designer ukulele. Pop around to the Beginners Ukulele Oasis for a FREE lesson!
