Special Event: Room of Art Requirements

An exchange of art materials.

We all have paint, paper, or tubes that we bought for a project, used once and now the stuff is just taking up space in our tiny London flats and studios. We don’t want to throw those art materials out because they cost a fortune, yet we know that it’s unlikely that we will ever use the stuff again. So why not give it to a fellow artist? If the materials were too expensive to give away why not exchange them, or sell them for a modest fee. After all we are all in this together.

Tom’s Etching Studio Railway Arch 229, Blenheim Grove, SE154QL London, United Kingdom from 11:00am – 2:00pm
