One of the problems about having original works of art on your walls is that creations by the masters could be more valuable than the house in which they are displayed.
But you don’t need to shell out millions of pounds to be a patron of original art – or why not go back to first principles and create your own?
That’s the idea behind the affordable art fair at Great Gaddesden Parish Hall this weekend.
The work of independent artists will be on sale, but there will also be a chance to create your own canvas in acrylics. Free tea and coffee is promised, too.
The fair runs on both Saturday and Sunday, see www.arttrend.co.uk for more.
