Drawing on Cirencester - The Big Draw

  • Bingham House 1 Dyer Street Cirencester, GL7 2PP United Kingdom (map)

 Come along to our drop in drawing activity on Saturday 1st October from 10 to 2 led by Cirencester artist Laurie Plant. This is part of the Big Draw a nationwide event this October, which aims to encourage all ages to have a go at drawing.


The event links to this year’s Bingham Gallery special exhibition Drawing on Cirencester, which shows historic scenes of Cirencester over 250 years. It explores how Cirencester has been depicted using the most direct and simplest of artist techniques, drawing. From the series of bold expressive drawings of the town created in 1814 by the well-known artist Jean Claude Nattes to more recent views by Cirencester- based artist Laurie Plant whose work is included in the exhibition.


Suitable for all ages from five up (stay 10 minutes or all morning). Admission free.
Laurie Plant is a well-known Cirencester artist known for his woolly jumper hare in 2014’s Hare Festival and also his commission ‘Cirencester Capital of the Cotswold’s’ now in the Bingham gallery’s collection.
