The BIG draw is back at Fordhall for another year! Everyone is invited to come and join us at the farm to unleash their creative side in this fun filled activity where children and adults can display their artistic talents either by drawing or building models out of recycled materials.
The big draw is a free activity that was set up by Quentin Blake (the illustrator of Roald Dahl's books) to try and get children and adults alike into bringing out their artistic sides in free events. Whether you like to be precise in your drawings or have more of a rustic hand here's the place to have a go and have some fun.
Last years big draw theme was fantastic creatures where imaginations were key in creating your own unique animal, for example a 'sheep,pig,cow' combining a mixture of all three or a ten eyed, six legged mole. This years theme is '2012 Green Spaces', using your imagination and memories to create your most inspiring Green Space of 2012!
We are young and determined people assisted by over hundreds of volunteers who have come together to ensure this beautiful traditional countryside is saved. We are increasing the rich biodiveristy of the farm and helping to educate people about the pasture to plate cycle. Demonstrating that small-scale farming connected to the local community can offer a viable way of life for generations to come.
