“Watch Warren Raysdorf painting his Sketch Warz. How about face painting, tell us what you are doing to reduce your carbon footprint and don’t miss the fabulously creative ‘trash fashion’ designed by students from Centre for Fine Art Animation and Design (CFAD). There are super prizes on offer,” invite the organisers.
