Grand Finale for our Secret Windermere project

Lead by Friend’s of the Lake District our Secret Windermere project held its final exhibition and Celebration Day in June. On the 7th we were asked to open the exhibition along with children from Langdale school. On show was all the great work on tranquillity and the Debris Dives that the project has delivered. Drawings and models inspired by debris dive litter and created by Langdale and Hawkshead primary schools in workshops run by local artist Jac Scott and Amanda McCleery from Flora of the Fells were on display. The workshops helped children explore the environmental issues Windermere is facing. Inspired by working with the children Jac also created 3 sculptures from the debris. The next day was bathed in glorious sunshine perfect for a family fun Celebration. A range of activities helped participants explore peace and quiet through making prayer flags, felt making, willow weaving and tai chi. So many people have helped make the project a success: Windermere Reflections and the Heritage Lottery Fund, Flora of the Fells Project at Friends of the Lake District, the National Trust, all the schools involved, everyone who came on one of our events, Paul Rose, Impact International, Kendal Sub Aqua and all the divers who came to the Debris Dive, Leonie Black and Jac Scott, Windermere Lake Cruises and all the volunteers who helped at the Debris Dive and at the Celebration Event!  Work created by all schools involved and a record of our public events are showcased in a portfolio and DVD; this and art works created from debris from the Windermere dive will be on display at Wray Castle until the mid September 2013.
