It was wonderful to see so many new faces at our STEAM event as part of the Big Draw Festival 2016 on 23 October. We were delighted to see people had travelled across the city, from as far as Ward End to join us. We had two rooms full of activity and 150 people through the doors at a steady, and very chilled pace. It was also great to welcome some more local residents who had come to the Baths for the first time.
This event was a collaboration with Birmingham Society of Botanical Artists, who have their base at the Baths once a month. Great people to work with and VERY talented artists. We also had workshops with Leaf Creative Arts and Natalia, a local resident, who specialises in movement and dance.
You’ll see from the pictures that many families came to enjoy the activities; it was also noticeable how many adults re-discovered their own talent for drawing and appreciated being able to relax with a sketch book and take some time for themselves to be creative with the botanical artists.
A fun and creative afternoon, and the last big event this side of Christmas to be run as part of the Stirchley Baths Heritage Programme. It’s been a very busy couple of months!
A massive thank you to our team of volunteers on the day; our own fantastic crew at the Baths and also volunteers from Birmingham Society of Botanical Arts.
