Read what Art Couture Painswick is all about.

The Festival is the starting point for year-round activities that encourage people in the community to partake in and enjoy the wearable arts. Several commercial products have been created using our student's artwork. We work with schools and colleges within their syllabus, and our long-term goals include possible bursaries for college students. The Festival competition offers work placements as prizes to college students.
