The Big Draw at Rufford Craft Centre 

The Big Draw exhibition was held 7 October – 16 November 2014.

The Big Draw is the world’s biggest celebration of drawing. It has grown into a month-long festival running throughout October in all parts of the UK. Every year more organisers across the world join the Big Draw family and run drawing events to engage their communities in creative activities. See more about the Campaign for Drawing. This independent charity raises the profile of drawing as a tool for thought, creativity, social and cultural engagement.
