OHOS was delighted to welcome Mayor and Battle Councillor Sarah Hacker to the Big Draw event at Brock Keep on 3 October. Her dedication and support for Arts in Reading always provide a great morale boost. Visitors of all ages enjoyed Kate Lockhart's drawing, collage and monoprinting activities. Promoted by RIBA, architect Ksenija Krotin showed the use of plans and elevations, including a very big floor plan of a Hobbit House. Kate also led a follow up workshop at Battle Library a few days later. Both events encouraged visitors to enter Battle Library's Lord of the Rings art competition relating to The Return of the King: the hand in date for entries is Sat 17 October at 4pm.
