The event and Drawing Room concept was created and developed by Diane Watson, CCAD fashion and textiles course leader. She said: “The Big Draw was for those who love to draw, as well as those who think they couldn’t. So we invited our students from all higher and further education courses such as photography, creative film and interactive media, alongside the more traditional drawing-led courses such as fine art, to join the communal drawing space.
“Moving away from traditional drawing tools and techniques, The Drawing Room aimed to explore the boundaries of custom-made drawing machines and how they can be used to communicate ideas, concepts and designs. At the end of the project, we have created a drawing room full of individuality, creativity, colour and design, telling the individual stories of all of those taking part.
