Guildford Borough's Big Draw 2019

We are excited to be hosting a programme of 10 free creative workshops for all the family, to celebrate the national Big Draw Festival. Run in partnership with local arts practitioners and venues, these workshops are designed to let you explore new and creative ideas.

Taking the national Big Draw theme 'drawn to life' as a starting point, the event artists will provide a range of free, accessible, high quality and creative activities across the borough.

The festival is all about letting loose, embracing happy accidents, discovery, and most importantly having fun through drawing in all its forms!

Find out about all of our 2019 workshops in our icon events programme [3.94MB] or search for events on the national Big Draw website.
