Fringe Poster Competiton Workshop

We were thrilled to be invited to work with the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society to promote the 2017 Poster Competition!

P5B thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to work with artist Jon Bishop,  exploring  different drawing techniques using a range of media. The pupils were interviewed by BBC Radio Scotland and had their photographs taken by several newspaper photographers. We shall keep you posted of any publications!
