Everyone A Maker: Think BIG, Draw BIG
Part of Everyone A Maker Rich Mix
Sun 22 Oct 11am - 4pm
Families! Take part in our drawing adventure which encourages play and experimentation. Make your own drawing devise and explore the unique marks of your invention. The event will focus on experimentation and the inventive use of materials, helping us to re-imagine how we might draw and make marks on paper. Art Hoppers are interested to see how our bodies can influence the marks we make – perhaps you want to create a drawing devise which you wear under your sock, or maybe you’d like to create a tool which attaches to the end of your spectacles… Whatever you decide to create, how would this work if you no longer had the full control of your drawing in the way we do with a pen or pencil? How would you feel about leaving the responsibility of your mark making down to chance? Get involved to test the results of your own drawing invention!

What to Expect

A room full of materials; cardboard, willow, carbon paper, tape, elastic, wire, pens, pencils and a giant roll of paper. The challenge: To explore new, exciting ways of making marks on paper. Create a simple drawing devise to wear or manipulate! Apply your imagination in the making and your bodies in the marking. The resulting marks will be distinctly your own. Interact with others, or work alone. Watch the clash of marks interact with each other created by the community of people taking part. Join the showcase of drawing devises as they paraded down a catwalk of paper at the end of the day.
