Marylebone summer fayre a hit for WAES visitors!
Westminster Adult Education Service was a huge hit at this year’s Marylebone summer fayre, with family learning activities, a community painting and even a still life drawing workshop!
The annual fayre, which has been running for ten years, attracted visitors from across London this June to experience a traditional village fete event with food, drink, music, craft stalls tombola and lashings of community spirit.
WAES held open workshops for families on the day, enabling parents, carers and children to work together on creative projects. Meanwhile a tutor from the art department helped passers-by to learn new techniques in drawing with a drop-in still life workshop.
"I didn’t know I could learn so much about drawing in only 5 minutes”
One learner remarked: “The still life drawing workshop was excellent – I didn’t know I could learn so much about drawing in only 5 minutes”.
Making the most of the community spirit, WAES invited anyone and everyone to contribute to the WAES big picture, collaborative community paintings of the Kensington Gardens Peter Pan statue and the Animal War memorial in Hyde Park.
Thank you to everyone who came along, had a go with the activities and joined in at this year’s
