It took a little longer than I had hoped but I am happy to say the artwork from the children’s drop in art workshop that ran as part of The Wallsend Festival is now on public display at The Forum Shopping Centre in Wallsend until Friday 7th October.

When I was mounting the work I had the pleasure of chatting to a few shoppers who shared their appreciation of the children’s work. One lady told me she thought it was a really fantastic day and that the work the children made was amazing. She said she’d come back for a proper look when she was done.
