Big Draw and Art Fair!

The Big Draw event is happening here at Fordhall Farm on Sunday 16th October 10am-4pm. The national event, endorsed by Quentin Blake, encourages children and adults alike to take part in FREE art activities around the country.

We want you to come on down to Fordhall and unleash your creativity. Have a go at inventing a Fantastic Creature. It could be anything from a Sheepig to a Hipporaffe! The event will be taking place in our classroom space, in the recently renovated buildings.  We will provide all the materials that you’ll need, you just need to bring your imagination! The Big Draw event is a great opportunity for all the family to get involved, whether you want to just have a go at being creative or you are a professional artist keen to show off you talent, this is your chance!

Also this year for the first time we are holding a Mini Art Fair, running from Friday 14th – Sunday 16th October, showcasing some local artists and designers. The exhibition opening times will coincide with the Fordhall Tea Room opening hours. (9.30am-5pm, Sunday 10am-4pm). We hope that this will be the start of something big; we want to give everyone the chance to get their work out there!
