The Big Draw 2019: Drawn to Life
Jim Bond
West Bridgford Library
Thu 31 Oct 2pm - 4pm
The Big Draw invites us all to explore drawing in all its forms and this year we invite you to drop in and draw with Jim Bond’s interactive kinetic drawing machines. FREE Family Arts Workshops  
For families of all ages and abilities
Just drop in
Celebrate the fun of drawing in different ways and work with kinetic sculptor Jim Bond to use his inventive drawing machines to change the way we think about drawing.

This years Big Draw removes direct control away from you the artist, and challenges the way we think about mark making. Jim will explore the challenges of adapting and making drawing machines accessible for all.

Come and try the drawing machines for yourself at one of the free family workshops in Inspire Libraries during The Big Draw Festival and check out the fantastic touring exhibition created by Jim and young people from Nottinghamshire Special Schools, on display at Mansfield Central Library from Saturday 19 October until Wednesday 18 December.

No prior drawing ability required and open to everyone!
