Festival invites Stratford artists to showcase work

THE ARTS Festival returns to Stratford Town Hall in June.

Artists and craftspeople will be showcasing a range of work including paintings, prints, jewellery, textiles, photography, sculpture, ceramics and furniture.

Escape Arts will be hosting workshops for both children and adults during the festival, over the weekend of June 1 and 2, at the nearby Old Slaughterhouse. Visitors will have the chance to recreate their pet in the style of Lichtenstein or Warhol, and also terracotta garden hens.

Curator Judith Layhe-Cook said: “I want our Arts Festival to be open to all, for our visitors to have engaged with the artists and their work, to have bought something that makes their heart sing, to share a coffee and cake with friends, to relax into the supportive atmosphere and for each and every visitor to go home a little happier and inspired.”

Entry is free with donations welcomed to the Shakespeare’s Puppies Appeal.
