the canal inspires…

 

a bird on the water

Using old pictures, local wildlife and our own ideas, we’ll design giant mill machines and autumn landscapes on long rolls of paper – help us create a 20metre monster of a machine!

 

Draw, design, sketch and scribble a mill as long as a monster, a canal full of creatures, a world of wonders and delights: join our team for a day of giant pictures and miniature moments

 

well-scribbled trees

As autumn edges towards winter, let’s try to catch the sharp edges of buildings, the wrinkles on the canal, the worn steps and wooden lintels of the mill buildings. Watch the canal and add The Portrait of a Duck. Or dream about the mill’s complicated machinery and fit some strange contraption of wheels and cogs and levers and lines somewhere….

 

and stories unfold with our drawing

Last time we did an event like this at the Mill, the finished picture spread along about 4 tables or lay out on the grass like a beached whale! A day of relaxed drawing – drop in for a scribble or two, draw us something for our piece and – or – do your own drawing to take away!

 

Like all the Derwent Stories events, Mills, canals and creatures is open to anyone who wants to join in but activities are structured around families with children with additional needs
