Our work with Amy’s Care on the Cumbria Sky Map continued last week with an art session, see what they got up to on the new blog post.
Last week was our second session with the Amy’s Care group at Tullie House, and our first artist session with Alex.
We were excited to see the Sky Map parasol, which is currently being painted lovely cloudy shades of blue by the other groups. Can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s finished, and everyone’s artwork gets added!
We also looked at the map, which the other groups have added to with things from their sessions. We’re hoping to see the Carlisle section later today.
The Kendal group also sent us a lovely message from their session. It was great to hear how they’ve been getting on.
This week we were painting eagle eggs, based on what looking at the real ones last week.
Alex showed us how to make lovely speckles and textures with wax crayons and watercolours, and we were a very productive…

‘Sun, sea and the sky; kites birds and clouds.’…as Helen said; ‘the clouds often come out in the Summer as well as in the Autumn! But the time has really flown by this week as the season changes. We certainly were talking about flight in our first session last week we had our very first session at Tullie House, working with the Amy’s Care Group.
We had a very creative afternoon, looking at some of our objects, including the beautiful Golden Eagle Eggs used by Artist Uta Kogelsberger for her project. We all thought they were quite big, and it was interesting to look at how different the two eggs were. One was white and the other was very speckled. Andy even thought that the egg looked a bit like Alastair!

Enjoying the special view of the exhibition.
Guest blogger Mary, Project Co-ordinator of Treasures of Cumbria, tells us about the latest exciting milestone from her Cumbria-wide projects.
Both the 1914 and 2014 timelines are now on show.
Guest blogger Helen tells you about this exciting take on the space. If you keep reading to the bottom, there’s a way we can all get involved and make a bit of history:
One Day in Cumbria is the latest temporary exhibition to appear in the Shed at Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery in Carlisle. Installation started earlier this week, where project co-ordinator Mary Ferguson unpacked the new panels and timeline banner, and organised the space ready for the new displays.
The One Day in Cumbria project marks the Centenary of the First World War. It has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund’s First World War: then and now programme, and centres on research into daily life and industry in 1914. People around Cumbria are invited to help make history on 5 December this year by sharing their updates about life on the same day in 2014, and the final results will be shown on an interactive timeline, at http://onedayincumbria.org.uk comparing and highlighting changes in the county 100 years apart.
