Land of the Giant
Legend has it that a violent thunderstorm in Borrowdale led to a new and strange discovery...In the heart of the Lake District, beyond the fells and through the mist, an ancient art form has grown (alright it’s 180 years old, but that’s older than your granny), and become the home of the world’s best pencils. Come and discover the colourful world that is home to a giant, the largest coloured pencils in the world, art adventures and not forgetting tasty treats!
It’s never too early or late in life to get the pencils out, get inspired by our artists and create your own adventures in art. With workshops in creative crafts from animation, cartoons and illustrations to model making there is something for all the family to get creative with.
