The Big Draw 2017

The Big Draw is the world’s biggest drawing festival from The Campaign for Drawing. Join us at one of the drawing events below and unleash you inner artist!

The Almshouses

Come and join artist Clare Winnan to create a collaborative peacock artwork! Create a decorative feather for the peacock by using clay and tools to imprint and build up textured patterns. Drop in anytime at The Town Hall on Saturday 30th 11am-3pm. Adult and family friendly!

The Town Hall

‘Map – Me’ is a fun drawing and collaging activity devised by local artist Anya Beaumont. Using pre-cut figures put yourself ‘on the map’ and add to a collaborative record of the arts trail. Suitable for anyone but younger children will need adult supervision. Drop-in activity ongoing throughout the art trail.

The Pound

Watch out for Big Draw events at The Pound throughout October, as part of their Fun Palaces weekend and during Half Term. Come and join our array of free events celebrating the fusion of art and science.

Fun Palaces is an annual, free, national celebration of arts and culture, driven by localism, innovation and community engagement. Filled with activities to make you say ‘wow’, we can’t wait for you to see what we have in-store. Saturday 7 October, 10am-4pm
