This festival is new this year and consists of forty pop-up shops in the CBD where artists can show their work and conduct workshops on a pop in basis. Occupying empty spaces in the CBD will hopefully bring a people into the CBD and give it a new lease of life, if only for 10 days.
The artists will showcase, apparel, music, workshops, performance, puppetry, and pottery as well as painting and drawing.
I plan to go to a pastel workshop on Thursday and a life drawing one on Wednesday night. Not quite ready for the unclothed model on Tuesday night !!! Wednesday's is clothed.
I'll post pictures in my next post.
