ARTIST Ashley Jackson will host a painting workshop as part of an art festival.
The Holmfirth artist is one of many local artists to take part in the Artsfest at the Standedge Tunnel and Visitor Centre. The Marsden centre is hosting a week-long celebration of local artists with workshops and exhibitions.
People need to book a place for the Ashley Jackson workshop, but the rest of the activities are free and open to all.
Exhibitions include ceramics, watercolour and textile pieces of art by 15 local artists. The event will take place from August 23 to 31 and visitors will be able to enjoy a free exhibition which will run from 10.30am until 4pm throughout the week.
