An international project which aims to get more people drawing will make its mark at Apsley this weekend.

The 2013 Big Draw programme runs throughout October and this year takes in no fewer than 15 countries, with more than 200,000 people expected to take part.

You’ll get your chance at the Frogmore Paper Mill on Sunday from 11am to 4pm.

There will be a range of innovative activities on offer including drawing with inks, monoprinting, letterpress printing, figure drawing, hand paper making and lots more.

It’s only £3.50 to get in although there is an extra charge if you want to take part in one of the waterborne drawing sessions.

The Paper Trail is also the home to regular exhibitions of work by contributing artists, showcasing creative work in Dacorum and further afield in the Peter Ingram Gallery and other spaces.

Fine art graduates from the University of Hertfordshire are the next group to share in the spotlight – you can find out more details online.
