Combine culture and good old fashioned fun with the Watts Gallery's A Fairy Fair next Saturday 20th June in Guildford.
Encourage the kids to make their own fairy wings and magic wands which will be judged by none other than Sir Peter Blake! Adults can saunter round Blake's Pop Art CCA Art Bus, a mobile art gallery and an artwork in it's own right. In addition, there is a special exhibition of Victorian fairy paintings for one day only to celebrate Blake's love of Victoriana.
Last year: Magic Fairy Wings workshop
Mr G F Watts and Sir Peter Blake

Enjoy a day of fun and fairies. Children can book to make fairy wings and magic wands whilst adults meet the Father of Pop Art, Sir Peter Blake (famed for his Sgt. Pepper’s cover and his love of Victoriana) on the CCA Art Bus (www.ccaartbus.co.uk) where there will be a special exhibition. There will also be a special exhibition of Victorian fairy paintings for one day only. Not to be missed.
Dreweatts Auctioneers will be offering antique valuations from James Braxton of BBC Flog It! and Bargain Hunt fame, whilst the Tea Shop will offer home-cooked food. Take a hard-hat tour of the restoration and a guided tour of the Watts Chapel.
