Fridayfest at Mermaid Arts Centre is a wonderful drop in activity every Friday morning that anyone can get involved with.

Elida Maiques is one of four artists associated with the centre behind the event. Some people come to draw others to simply write, it is up to the individual what they do with the time.

Elida Maiques said: “The sessions last an hour and a half and are upstairs in the multi-purpose room. Anyone who wants to draw or write in the company of others is welcome. You don’t have to show your work”

Some people bring their own work, to work on there, while others make use of the chance to seek advice from other artists and Elida.

All professional artists and casual doodlers a like can take time to sit, draw and chat.
