Come to the Eden Project for a weekend of art!

Hello, we are now back from Borneo and busily organising all the paintings, drawings, photographs and videos to act as a resource for you to use to inspire lots of amazing art! The HD versions of our video blog are now available on the ‘Person of the Forest’ chapter page.
