This Christmas workshop will be done using up-cycled DVD’s and old vinyl records to make unique gifts. Something for all ages and for everyone, like a bandanna for your dog, a bag for your gifts, vinyl record “cards” and memories, etc

‘Probably the Cutest Caricatures in London, Inspired by London’s Multiculturality’
Silu has been at artFix cafes drawing our customers with his original style.
Every drawing is an adventure, full of adrenaline in finding balance, beauty, and harmony
“I enjoy diversity, and for this reason, drawing portraits is such a joyful experience. It makes me aware of the beauty in the world and I choose to reveal it my way. Diversity is beautiful. Diversity is about how nature expresses its freedom. Be aware! These are not just simple caricatures. My drawings contain emotions”
15:00 – 16:00 – Cafe Area & Events Room
Salsa Show with Open Class
Gianni & Valeria have been running dance classes at artFix Woolwich since September and they will now show you what it is all about, and why so many people come back week after week. Fun and engaging, with a mix of single footwork and dance in couple. Predominantly Salsa, but also Rueda de Casino, Merengue and Bachata. All very popular Caribbean and South America dance styles!
They will perform for you at the cafe area and will then open the dance floor to give you a free tasting session of their classes.
