Join us on Saturday 14th October from 12-4pm for an unusual drawing workshop in the boxing ring at Salford Lads’ Club. We will be drawing the fast moving combat sports of Capoeira, Ju-jitsu, Thai and ABA boxing.

Can’t draw? Well we can’t box either, but we know someone who can. We have a Capoeira group led by Danny Henry called Capindiana, Manchester Cobras Kickboxing Club and ABA boxers from Salford Lads’ Club.

All the drawing materials are provided free and we have artists on hand to provide encouragement. So please come along and join the fun.

The Big Draw is part of the national programme of drawing activities taking place all over the UK.

The Big Draw from the Boxing Ring is organised by Salford Lads’ Club and Ordsall Community Arts and supported by Awards 4 All and Salford Council.
