For all of human history, we have been doing things to make our bodies beautiful, in honour of our current exhibition ‘The Art of Self-Expression; facial hair and tattoos through the ages’, we will be showcasing decorating the human body.

We will be joined by some wonderful contributors who will be offering henna, body painting, special effects make up and colour analysis. There will also be demonstrations of production arts hair and make up from our lovely local college students, and even some drag make up demos! Kids can get involved too with some dressing up and there will be a competition to create the best tattoo design.

The main demonstrations and services will be on show between 10am and 4pm.

If you are interested in being one of our artists or stylists for a day or more during this event then email the team – you must be able to supply copies of all the relevant insurance and licenses to take part.
