The Big Draw 2015

October sees the return of The Big Draw.  There's a range of activities across the city, and indeed across the country, but here's news from June Whittaker of an event of particular interest to our members.

Once again, York Minster is pleased to host a week of Big Draw activity during the Autumn half term break (Monday October 26th – Friday October 30th inclusive).

This year’s Big Draw theme – Every Drawing Tells a Story – could hardly be more appropriate in a building whose wealth of medieval carving, stained glass and people have been telling stories for centuries!


The daily sessions will run from 10.00 until 16.00, with the last issue of materials at 15.30.


The drawing station will be in the North transept, below the Five Sisters’ Window, but participants will be free to work throughout the cathedral. There is no charge for materials or to take part, but normal admissions apply.


These sessions are open to anyone of whatever age or experience, and participants may take their drawings away with them our leave them for possible inclusion in the accompanying exhibition.
