Posca Paint Pens transform our shop window.

SPZero created an illustration for us of an awesome crazy robot dude. Because the robot loves Posca so much he always uses one in each of his four hands. You can see it really gets him into a creative frenzy!

Broad Canvas was pleased to support Ardington School of Crafts’ first ever Arts & Crafts Prize for Schools this weekend. The competition was open to secondary schools throughout the area and had the theme: Positivity. First prize went to Lottie Harper for her multi-media project ‘Brain Box’ with other winners including Sophie Barker for ‘The Beautiful Battle’; a winner’s sash inspired by the shape of cancer cells.

Broad Canvas sponsored The People’s Choice Prize, voted on by tutors, visitors and students – the winner being Dylan Everett for his piece: Escapism. The quality of work was inspiring and we hope that this becomes an annual event, if only for the fact that we get to visit the beautiful village of Ardington again. Look out for a list of their craft courses on our noticeboard in the future if you fancy going there too.
