Creative Annan Event
Annan – an open book.
On 2nd November, from 2.00pm to 5.00pm at Annan Athletic’s Club everyone is invited to join artists Hugh Bryden, Katie Anderson and Vivien Jones to draw, write, craft, fold, photograph and sculpt. This is all about creating responses to living in and around Annan. We want to start to a new project celebrating Annan’s cultural and historical legacy and we want to find out what you want.. Fun and laughter guaranteed. This is a FREE drop-in event.
