The ‘Cornish Sky-Disc’

Join artist Bob Walley in creating a community  ‘Cornish Sky Disc’ using mixed media on wood in this free art workshop taking place at the Museum on June 30th from 10am-4pm.

This project workshop is open to all, with an aim to create a colourful and striking collaborative community arts piece, which will then be on display in the Royal Cornwall Museum.

The inspiration for this artwork is the Nebra Sky-Disc, a 3600 year old Bronze Age artefact which is described as ‘one of the most important archaeological finds of the past century.’ The disc is made of Copper from the Swiss Alps, and gold and tin from Cornwall, which shows the age old connection the county has had with the continent.

The Cornish Sky-Disc project aims to raise awareness of this rich historical and multi-cultural heritage and to show the importance of celebrating diversity in Cornwall.

Everybody is welcome! Open to all ages, children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
