Artists Kiran Chahal and Tom Downing as well as Dunmow Knitting Group members invited families to take part in drawing and craft activities at Dunmow library.

Tom brought a cardboard model of the library, which was big enough to fit a child inside, and knitting group members showed parents and children how to make wool pom poms.

The young ones tracked down buttons in High Street shops, which they used for card decorating

Kiran also showed the budding artists how to use spray-paints for the cards.

Organiser of the Big Draw Day, Catherine Mummery said: “It was wonderful to see people of all ages enjoying the activities including adding to our jigsaw featuring drawings of favourite childhood games. This event would not have been possible without the help of the library staff.”
