Are you a budding artist? Do you love to draw? Or have you got ideas you wish you could capture on paper? If so, bring along your imagination to the Grand Union Canal for a half-term activity filled with colour
There will be a free workshop, run by a local artist, open to all ages and abilities. All the drawing materials are provided.
It is part of a month of events to get people drawing in public forums, with galleries and museums from across the globe taking part.
Inspiration won’t be hard to come by at the Canal Museum’s workshop as the theme is STEAM – science, technology, engineering, arts and maths – and where better to look for Britain’s industrial heritage and engineering feats than the canals?
Stephanie Furniss, duty manager at the Canal Museum, said: “Canals and rivers have always been a big attraction for artists, from Constable and Canaletto to the countless professional and amateur artists who are still drawn down to the waterside today.”
The workshop, organised by the Stoke Bruerne Canal Partnership, runs from 11am to 4pm on Wednesday 26 October.
