The Big Draw Week Launch

The Big Draw week in Hucknall, launched at 10am on Saturday 20th October, with various venues across Hucknall joining together to "Fly The Flag for Hucknall"
 
One of these venues is our own Gallery on Baker Street. On Saturday, we welcome artist Anna Roebuck, who ran a "recycled art" project throughout the day. The idea was to use bits and pieces of "junk" to create a piece of art work. Different people dropped in between 10am and 4pm to have a go, and to add their own drawing to the expanding piece of work. Everybody said how much fun it was to sit down and to have a go.
