Photography, landscape paintings and glass sculptures were among the highlights at a Sheffield art festival.

Wadsley Art Festival, which was held over two days at Wadsley Church, attracted more than 300 art fans who enjoyed displays by artists including Sue Nichols and Paul Schatzberger.

The Reverend Rob Young vicar of Wadsley Church, and his wife Jackie showcased a collection of sculptures created in their Wadsley glass studio, while Lauren Misiukankis hosted a bobbins and buttons workshop.

Glass and acrylic artwork by Paul Butler was sold during the event to help raise funds for the special care baby unit at Sheffield’s Jessop Wing hospital.

Rebekah Lawson, who helped organise the event, said: “The festival overall was a huge success and had a really a strong community feel to it.

“So many people from the local area came and got involved with the various activities which were enjoyed by all of the visitors to the festival.”
