Dozens of street artists were hard at work at Woodend’s Black Forest Timber Mill on Saturday, sharing a vast array of works as part of this year’s Macedon Ranges Sustainable Living Festival.

The centrepiece of the exhibition was a co-operative mural created with sugar-based paints on a giant, upcycled plywood canvas.
