  • The History of Freemasonry in Penrith and The East Lakes and 300 Years of the United Grand Lodge of England

    The History of Freemasonry in Penrith and The East Lakes and 300 Years of the United Grand Lodge of England

    Freemasons have made, commissioned and used a range of objects, books and documents which together tell the fascinating story of the fraternity. An intriguing selection of such artefacts owned by the Penrith Masonic Hall Trust is being made available for an exhibition to run at Penrith and Eden Museum from 3 June to 6 August 2017 to mark the tercentenary of the United Grand Lodge of England. On 24 June 1717 four London lodges met at the Goose and Gridiron Tavern near Saint Paul’s Cathedral as a Grand Lodge, and elected a Grand Master to preside over them, and so began the history of modern freemasonry.

Lavender and daisy, ivy leaves, wild strawberry, small leaved geranium all work well.  Colours and definitions may be applied using the same techniques as the Bud Vases course.  Ideas for triptychs (a picture on three panels) are limitless: seasons, flowers, leaves, childrens' book characters,  animals, birds, numbers, stories etc etc.  You will start with a porcelain slab around A4 size and you can create one large relief tile or devide into smaller pieces.  The materials charge for this to include the usual firing which will be £10 payable to Gwen.  Further porcelain will be available at cost pro rata.  Alternatively a triptych comprising 3 panels each roughly 1/3rd of A4 size would be the same.  Panels larger than 1/3rd A4 height are not advisable.
