Dress, Paint, Pose like a Suffragist is being presented by the Norwich Dandies in the Kastle Kids unit at the Norwich shopping centre on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

The exhibition features work from local, national and international artists, and throughout the event there will also be a drop-in creative arts workshop.

People can dress up as a Suffragist (or Dandy), pose as models for others to paint, or pick up a paintbrush and have a go at painting a picture themselves.

People of all ages and of all artistic abilities are invited to get involved with the event.

The project has been supported by the Women's Vote Centenary Grants Scheme.

Dress, Paint, Pose like a Suffragist is at the Castle Mall from 11am until 5pm on Tuesday, February 6 and Wednesday, February 7.
