The Big Draw 2017: Cathedral Colouring-In Challenge Saturday 21 October until Sunday 29 October 10.30am - 5.00pm Public invited to help complete Giant Colouring-in Carpet at Gloucester Cathedral for Big Draw 2017!  

Gloucester Cathedral is embracing the National Campaign for Drawing Big Draw 2017 with a spectacular free interactive week-long activity this October half term.

Renowned architectural artist Amy Jane Adams has designed a GIANT colouring-in carpet that will run the entire length of one of the Cathedral’s world famous cloister walkways!   Stretching at least 30 metres the carpet details the beautiful fan vaulted ceiling and other architectural features of the cloister.

The Cathedral warmly invites the public to come and add colour to this magnificent creation that will be in the cloisters daily.  The event will be free on a drop-in basis. Donations towards the cost of materials will be optional to those who wish to contribute.  

And that’s not all! The week will open with a two-day LIVE Draw where visitors will be able to view the artist creating an installation with large scale ink and watercolour murals inspired by the history and architecture of the Cathedral. Life-size depictions of key figures from the Cathedral’s history like Abbott Serlo, founder of the Cathedral, Edward II and Henry VIII will take centre stage.  This fantastic opportunity will run 10.30am-1pm and 2pm-5pm on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd October.
