The BIG Draw – Micro to Macro - at Carding Mill Valley in Shropshire, on Sunday 5th October between 10am and 4pm.

In partnership with The National Trust , join DASH for a day of creativity, celebrating the Shropshire landscape with award winning artist Tanya Raabe. Carding Mill Valley is situated in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is also one of the oldest and most important geological sites in the country.

We will be exploring the environment using magnifying glasses and frames to discover the tiniest unseen specimens, then using pencils, charcoals, pens and ink these glimpses of our tiny environment can be turned into works of art.

DASH is funded by Arts Council England and Shropshire Council. The Art Express project is funded by The Big Lottery and Tesco Charity Trust.
