  • 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 10 September 2017 (extended run) 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.

It has been in operation for ten years now, and was helped in its early (first five) years with support from Cumbria Community Foundation, North Pennines LEADER+ and DEFRA, the Co-operative Group Community Dividend Fund, Cumbria County Council, Cumbria Rural Enterprise Agency, Eden District Council and Brough Parish Council.  The current opening hours are 9am till 2pm.

  • Intro to Silver Clay jewellery - Inspired by Nature with Jo Dix

    Intro to Silver Clay jewellery - Inspired by Nature with Jo Dix

    Jo runs her own Silver jewellery business called Silver Forge in the South Lakes.  There's a lot of freedom in forming jewellery from Silver Clay and there is less emphasis on the traditional jewellery making skills. Being made of silver particles the material is not cheap by any means and can command a higher price than mined silver.  Silver Clay is part of the metal clay family.  It is a fabulous medium for making just about anything, from the simplest piece to the most intricate patterns.  It's great for all skill levels and fires as Fine Silver (99.9% pure) which is a higher quality that the jewellery "norm" of Sterling Silver (92.5%). Design and make your own bespoke beautiful jewellery in a day.
