The Big Draw: Things That Go Bump in the Night!

Shadow Puppet Making Workshop

The Big Draw is the world's largest drawing festival, for those who love to draw, as well as for those who think they can't!  

The theme of the Big Draw this year is Living Lines and is designed to get your marks moving!

At Ards Arts Centre we plan to make your drawings literally come to life with a one-off, drop-in workshop in shadow puppetry.

We are delighted to welcome renowned puppeteer, Karen Tourley from Banyan Puppet company to facilitate this free workshop where you will learn the art of creating a moving image through this ancient medium.
