Calling upon designers of all ages, designers are welcomed to join a competition that will showcase their designs and talents. The beauty of the Painswick Art Festival is its unique challenges it holds for their contestants. The Painswick Art Festival challenges the designers to use and harness the power of their imagination.
With contest ranging from “Head Candy” to “Bra-tastic”, Painswick keeps the festival interesing from start to finish. Appropriately called “Fish and Chips”(Image-Right), designer Millie won the Open competition for designers between the ages of 12-17.
