A whole host of artists will be exhibiting at CAT on the 29th August as part of an Arts and Sustainability Fair. The day-long event will include creative activities for children and adults as well as a diverse Arts Trail around the CAT site and a craft fair.

The Arts Trail will exhibit the works of more than a dozen diverse artists around the Centre for Alternative Technology Visitor Centre. There will be several exhibits from local artists including painting from Julia Wilson, photography from Amanda Jackson, participatory green woodworking with Joseph Bloor and CAT staff, an art installation from Buddug J Francis, impressionist painting by Marie-Genevieve Pierre, a fresco by Julie Jones and a nomadic studio from Sarah Poland.

A series of workshops will be open to all visitors at no extra cost. Glenn Edwards, an award winning photojournalist who has worked for the Western Mail, Wales on Sunday, The Times and The Independent will be running a digital photography workshop for visitors at 2pm – so bring your camera along. Visitors will also be able to get a taster of green woodworking, poetry writing, storytelling, rag rug making and illustration.

There will be lots of activities for children too at Arts and Sustainability Fair, including wide games across the site, storytelling, illustration workshops and other creative activities. Children and Adults will be able to enjoy live music and pizza tasting from the earth oven.
