Sat 31 Oct all day
Our 10th Dunmow Big Draw. This year saw stunning new sculptures created for the town by professional artists and a fun family art trail featuring artworks by local children, adults & residents from Redbond Care Home all under the theme is “A Climate of Change”. In celebration of the 10th Dunmow Big Draw stunning new sculptures were created for the town by professional artists and a fun family art trail was devised. The trail featured artworks by local residents aged 2- 90 plus.
Artists Deb Hart, Graham Slade created a giant perch sculpture out of willow, rush nettles and reclaimed steel. Perch are known to live in the river Chelmer that runs through great Dunmow and fish are good indicators of the health of a river. Artist Nabil Ali has taken inspiration from the Green Man carving on St. Mary’s Church. He created “Leaf People” that were displayed in St. Mary’s Riverbank Walk. The abstract figures made out of natural materials and are there to encourage us all to pause and think about what we can all do to help local wildlife. The art trail linked the sculptures by taking families on a healthy walk through the town. 25 local shops & cafes displayed artworks created by local children and older adults. The art trail ran from 10-31 October.
The Dunmow Big Draw was organised by local arts company High Stile Projects and has been supported by a National Lottery grant from Arts Council England. Local schools and groups taking part included Dunmow St. Mary’s & Great Dunmow Primary, Freedom Daycare Nursery, Dunmow Brownie units and residents from Redbond Care Home.
