Get your pencil out for Big Draw festival

Inspirational drawing workshops will take place at Ayscoughfee Hall with artist Rosie Redzia as part of the Big Draw Festival this month.
South Holland District Council has worked in partnership with Transported to commission three drawing classes inspired by the Big Draw Festival’s theme of Every Drawing Tells a Story.
Rosie, who is based in King Lynn and has worked around Lincolnshire and Norfolk, invites participants to take inspiration from the collections, architecture and gardens of Ayscoughfee Hall and to bring along their own “treasures” or “museum pieces” to draw.
Participants will learn easy ways to create images which tell a story, before making their own mini sketch-kit, mini zine or arty mobile to take home.
The sessions will cover markmaking, expressive lines, observational drawing and imaginative ways to display the mini masterpieces.
All materials will be supplied and the workshops are suitable for people of all abilities and ages 14 and over.
The Big Draw Festival is an international celebration of drawing that takes place throughout October.
The festival, which started as a one day event, now attracts hundreds of partners and hundreds of thousands of participants all over the world.
Every Drawing Tells a Story workshops will take place at Ayscoughfee Hall from 1.30pm-3.30pm on Sunday (October 11) and Sunday, October 18, costing £3.50 per session.
