Every drawing tells a story: Big Draw 2015


Every Drawing Tells a Story is the Big Draw theme for 2015 and we invited Greg Stobbs, aka Squirl, to lead this year’s workshop. About 60 people of all ages took part as participants and volunteers. It was nice to welcome new participants as well as to see some returning participants from last year. The challenge was to tell a story in a single, non-linear image, something which everyone succeeded in doing.

“It was lovely to see the different generations telling each other their stories” (Petra Matthews Crow).

The photos of the drawings will form the basis of a design by Squirl for vinyls to be placed in Dover Children’s Library.

Once again we were fortunate to have the use of the Dover Discovery Centre Cafe area thanks to Sarah Bottle, Coast Librarian. The workshop was supported by Dover Town Council and Dover Big Local.
