Accompanying the Definitions of Drawing exhibition, and part of the Big Draw Festival ,‘Make The Change!’ with Sunny Bank Mill's fun and family-friendly drawing workshops.

Join artist in residence Si Smith in the gallery for Sunny Bank’s inaugural Big Draw children's event!

We’ll have a stack of drawing tools and materials for you to try out, and these workshops will be accessible to everyone - age is no barrier, and whether you’re a budding Beryl Cook, a possible Picasso, or virtually Van Gogh you’re all welcome to come and have a draw with us.

(And of course, when you’re done drawing, you can always hang around for a look round our ‘Definitions of Drawing’ exhibition. It’s really great…)

Places are limited, so book early!
