Writing and Drawing Together
Elizabeth Hammond and Maija Liepins with Hampshire Libraries and Test Valley Borough Council
Sun 10 Apr 14:00-15:30
A wonderful FREE opportunity to explore the links between writing and drawing and to become part of the Big Open Book. Artists Maija Liepins and Elizabeth Hammond present the Big Open Book, a library connections project for Andover and Romsey.

Join both artists Live on Zoom for a FREE ‘Writing and Drawing Together’ Event, 2.00 - 3.30pm on Sunday 10 April.

About the project:
Creating links between the artists, the libraries and the participants, this project consists of a series of workshops which will culminate in two paper-based installations at Andover and Romsey libraries. Combining the practices of drawing and writing this project will reveal the hidden connections that are accessible to anyone in the threads and traces of drawing and writing processes. These processes we will share with you so you can experience your own meaningful connections. Through group activities, a community dialogue will emerge and become a work of art. Participants can take part in all activities and events free of charge. This project is brought to you by Hampshire Libraries and Test Valley Borough Council with funding from Arts Council England.

Remote access options include an Event Replay and Screenings:
You will be able to access the ‘Writing and Drawing Together’ event replay via our Facebook group or come to one of the screenings at your local library during Lara Festival (an Easter holiday event). It will show in Romsey Library on 19 April and in Andover Library on 20 April.

Drop In and Join In:
