Big Draw at British Postal Museum

To tie in with this year's 50th anniversary of Regional stamps, and the Big Draw theme of Architecture and the Environment, the British Postal Musum & Archive (BPMA) will be exploring how visitors feel about their own region and environment, and working together to produce a giant three dimensional 'regional' stamp.

BPMA staff and artist Paul Jackson invite visitors for an afternoon of drawing and modelmaking inspired by images from the BPMA's collections according to the website.

The Big Draw is a nationwide campaign in Great Britain to promote the power of drawing. It runs every year throughout October. People of all ages and abilities are invited to explore different techniques and materials.

This is the third year that the BPMA has participated in The Big Draw. Previous years' activities have included experimental film techniques used by the GPO Film Unit, and the classic Machin Head stamp design.
