Look and learn on festival day with Art Group Wanstead


A range of drop-in art workshops and demonstrations for all ages will take place at the Wanstead Festival on 17 September.

“Tutors and artists will be showing techniques with watercolours, calligraphy, portrait paintings and a clever way to put together mixed-media designs that can be transferred to T-shirts. Botanical subjects always intrigue. No real insects are hurt for tutor Katherine Poluck’s amazing mounted butterflies (pictured) – learn about her realistic techniques,” said a spokesperson for Art Group Wanstead.
