Will I be able to participate in any workshops in English? It would be no problem for me to get to Warsaw but my painting is not up to level for competing. I would be interested in educating myself though.

not sure about the guy doing the sculpting workshop.
As for painters - again, not sure who's exactly responsible for this. Ana sure knows English.hopefully the organiser will come to reply to your question in details.
