A sure-fire way to cure Christmas boredom!
A final message from Shed HQ for the year and just to let you know that THe Shed is very much open over Christmas (with the exception for Christmas day, Boxing day and New Year’s day) and there is plenty to see and do.
Today we’ve installed the Video Shed back in the gallery and set up a screen for you to record your own videos. We’re asking ‘What object sums up Carlisle now?’ As some of you may know, there’s an exhibition in the summer called Carlisle in 10 Objects and we want everyone’s thoughts about an object that can represent Carlisle in the present and into the future to put into the display. So your chosen object may well end up in the exhibition!
Also, there’s still time to book onto the Make a Festive Exhibtion of Yourself workshop on Sunday 28th December. Call Reception on 01228 618781 so that you can see your festive objects and stories on dispay in the museum! The first workshop was on Sunday and was a great success – you can still see the results of their work if you visit the Shed in the next week. Check out the Evening News and Star today (Tuesday 23 December) for some pictures of the workshop.
If you don’t have the opportunity to take part in this way, then you can see what other people have been up to and maybe leave a Christmassy drawing on the drawing wall.
And, we still have our glimpse into the Tullie House stores with objects on display that haven’t ever been publically shown or been out for a long time.
Thank you everyone who has visited the Shed, left a comment or particpated in a workshop this year. We’ve plenty more planned for the New Year so I hope to see you all again soon. If you’d like to share your comments with me about the space then I’m happy to receive them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a very merry Christmas and happy New Year.
