Drawing days, 7-8 May 2016

You are invited to our first painting & drawing day at the Town Mill on 7th & 8th May 2016 (10am-7pm). Registration is at 10am and you can work up until 7pm on both days.

Artists are welcome to use any medium and take inspiration from the Town Mill and the River Lym. You will need to bring your own materials, portable easels, and cameras down to The Mill to create photos, drawings and paintings of the exteriors and interiors of the site.

Any work produced during the two days can be left for selection to be exhibited as part of our MillFest open exhibition (12th – 24th May).

Tea & coffee making facilities will be available for participants. Please note that there are no car-parking facilities on site so you will have to use one of the town’s car parks. There is no charge for this event and we look forward to welcoming you!

On at the same time…

An art and craft fair based in The Malthouse offers visitors the chance to peruse and purchase the latest work by regional artists, craftsmen and women. TMA members have been invited to take part!
