Art in Action

One of my favourite art events was this weekend: Art in Action, a huge show where as well as exhibitions and a marketplace, there are lots of opportunities to literally see art in action. A number of artists demonstrate various techniques from sculpture to illustration, while visitors can also try new skills or improve existing ones in a range of taster classes. My first efforts at marquetry won't get me an appearance any time soon, but here are some real artists at work.
