The Big Draw

The Big Draw

At Newlands Corner

The Big Draw leads this festival every October believing that ‘everyone can draw’ and that drawing is a universal language that has the power to change lives and unite people of any age, background, race, or religion from around the globe.

Each October, we partner Guildford Borough Council to offer a free day of drop-in drawing activity at the iconic viewpoint of Newlands Corner. Anyone can join in and participants can work individually or collectively as a group. Over the past years we have seen collaborative, large-scale drawing with graphite on bamboo canes with Raw Ground Arts, making marks with the natural materials and pigments drawn from the local landscape with Jane Ponsford and creating kaleidoscopes for an alternative view with Helen Twigge-Molecey.

Keep an eye on our What’s On page for news of the next Big Draw event.

With thanks for additional support from Guildford Borough Council.
