Inspired by the art on display? Take a break from all that browsing and join in creating a collaborative 1.6 x 2 mural with Kristofferskolan! During the weekend of the fair, the Waldorf school will be creating an enormous mural based on work by Italian Rennaisance painter Botticelli. Snap up a ticket to the fair and you'll be able to join one of their one-hour workshops, in which a group of 16 participants will each draw a piece of the puzzle, which will then be joined together to form the whole image, on display at the fair.
The workshop is led by teachers and students from the aesthetic program at Kristofferskolan. The workshop is ideal for both adults, and children over ten years - no experience or Botticelli knowledge required! The workshop is free of charge and no booking is necessary (aside from your entry ticket of course!) - just visit second floor of the fair and join in!

PLATFORM PROJECT: Hidden Talents
Throughout the fair opening hours
Following the success of last years exciting exhibition, we're delighted to be bringing the Hidden Talents concept exhibtion back to the fair! Featuring six talented artists, who all have one thing in common; their aspiration to practice art full time, but don’t do it for a living… yet. The aim of this exciting platform project is to build a connection between these aspiring full time artists, our visitors and the exhibiting galleries – who of course are always on the hunt for new creative talent to represent!
Find the Hidden Talents exhibition it in the A row closest to the restaurant.
