Carnival Floats Draw Inspiration From Westwood

Budding young Picassos can enjoy a free art class in Shrewsbury this week.

Compost Kids, which is based within Shrewsbury’s award-winning Market Hall, will be offering free classes on Thursday, from 10am until 2pm, at Party in the Park in the Quarry.

The classes are offered in association with Sure Start.

Participants will get a chance to help create decorations for Compost Kids Vivienne Westwood-themed float for Saturday’s Shrewsbury Carnival. There will also be lots of other fun activities to enjoy, as well as a chance to learn more about Sure Start family centres.

Sam Pooley, who runs Compost Kids, said: "We are really looking forward to working with Sure Start and building a relationship with a wider local community in Shropshire, we want to get everyone excited about art."
