Children draw in wheat by Brixton Windmill
Beautiful patterns and designs have been created in a festival of art using colourful grains of wheat grown in a community garden.
At the ‘Big Draw Festival’ on Saturday chalk was also scattered throughout the gardens to brighten up the footpaths and guided tours of Brixton Windmill.
The large floor-art was inspired by Rangoli, an Indian folk art involving drawings made out of flour, seeds and pulses.
Run by Lambeth Council alongside charity Friends of Brixton Gardens, the historic site has been nominated for an English Heritage award, as well as collecting the Museums and Heritage Award for Excellence 2012 for Restoration/Conservation and the Best British Attraction Award in the Great Exhibition 2012.
