The artist opening up her home to let people draw on it

Artist Deborah Cordon

A woman from Torquay is from today letting people draw and write on her furniture and walls for an arts project.

It's part of the ongoing 10-day (extra) ordinary festival across Torbay which aims to promote cultural sites and activities.

Deborah Cordon has created a 'Write2Read Lounge' which she says is to 'share thoughts, memories and images, and to collaborate on writing projects that change perceptions of their neighbourhood'. 

She hopes the 'evolving installation' as she describes it will 'explore words and mark-making through writing, painting, textiles and more'.

Deborah said: "If something can be written on or in, we will write it.

"Buckets, spades, deckchairs, postcards, bunting, palm leaves.

"If something makes marks or doodles, we will use it: pens, pencils, burnt sticks, paints, fingers."

On Saturday she is also staging guided walks led by local historian Kevin Dixon exploring Lymington Road 'its history, nature and inhabitants'.
