Celebrity portraits in Great Yarmouth

I've made clay portraits of celebrities for a Dandifest exhibition at Great Yarmouth Library.

Dandifest 2017 officially starts on Tuesday 25th April with an opening party at St Margaret's Church of Art but we've already putting up a couple of exhibitions in other places. This weekend we decorated Great Yarmouth Library with (local) celebrity portraits. The exhibition is in memory of Yarmouth's House of Wax, which closed in 2014.
