Fifty fabric art pieces completed by students of the David Rose School for Special Needs will be displayed for sale at the Fashion and Beauty Expo billed for the Pegasus Hotel on May 21 and 22.
In addition, Jubilee crochet accessories (bookmarks and chokers) created by the inmates of the
women’s penitentiary in Berbice will also be on sale.
According to a press release from convener of the Expo, Sonia Noel, these pieces will be available from next week, so persons can begin to place orders.
The release revealed that the David Rose students were exposed to workshops in art, stenciling, craft and innovative fabric design, under the ambit of the Sonia Noel Foundation for the Creative Arts. The workshops were conducted by Clinton Duncan and Shonta Noel and the response from the participants was tremendous.

The release said all are welcome from makeup products to hair extensions, or homemade body lotions to established spa treatments, from local fashion designers to vendors of fashionable accessories. The event is free to the public and will run from 10 am to 7 pm on both days.
