World’s largest drawing festival helps families to get creative

Families in Doncaster enjoyed being budding inventors at a series of fun-filled workshops. 

The exciting workshops, which took place at The Point on South Parade, encouraged families to get creative and create their very own automata quirky sculptures made from wire and laser cut plywood.

These welcoming and inclusive workshops, which included activities specifically designed for disabled children and their families, were inspired by the larger-than-life automata in The Point’s ‘Human Machines’ exhibition.

Assistant Director at darts (Doncaster Community Arts), Helen Jones said: “Families had great fun unleashing their creative side at our half term workshops.

“We hope families have been inspired by The 2019 Big Draw Festival and its many hands-on activities”.

The Big Draw Festival is the world’s largest drawing festival, with this year’s #DrawnToLife theme focusing on the vital role of creativity for health and wellbeing.

The Point hosts a wide range of family-friendly activities throughout the year. For all upcoming activities, visit
