The free event organised by the Trust, along with the Stoke Bruerne Canal Partnership, is an opportunity for all budding artists, random scribblers and wannabe Picassos to come and take part in a free drawing workshop alongside the tranquil Grand Union Canal.

The theme for this year’s Big Draw workshop is STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) and, with lots of examples of industrial heritage and engineering everywhere you look along the waterways, the canals should provide plenty of inspiration for artists.

The workshop will be run by a local artist from 11am – 4pm and is open to all ages and abilities. All materials will be provided. Just turn up and bring your imagination. Car parking charges apply.
