Using the images of Jem Southam’s Rivers and Streams exhibition as a starting point, the Devon Guild of Craftsmen has created Waterlines, two-days of free drop-in Big Draw activities for half-term.

Jem’s striking photographic images of the River Exe are set to provide inspiration as visitors have the opportunity to work creatively with qualified artists and use a range of materials to explore the power of the line.

The Big Draw events this year will show the connection between drawing and making – an idea which the V&A London used in its Big Make 2012 – showing how drawing prompts inventions and the design of almost all material objects.

At the Guild, Waterlines will help children think about maps and modelling as they fit their collages together to make a group artwork.

Waterlines is at The Devon Guild of Craftsmen on Tuesday, October 30 and Wednesday, October 31 from 11am to 4pm. It is a free, drop-in event and suitable for all ages. No booking required. Under 12s should be accompanied.
