During the ‘Nepali Connections’ exhibition at Surrey Heath Museum, Gillian Barnes-Riding, Senior Museum Officer, mentioned a simply brilliant idea about a mosaic in the area at the top of the steps leading up to the museum entrance.
Gillian has been jolly kind to me, and said that “the mosaic forms part of the lasting legacy from the ‘Nepali Connections’ exhibition that was on display earlier this year and also marks the end of Cllr Tim Dodds successful year as Mayor”.
Enough. Now’s you’re chance to make your mark for all to see, and for years to come, by creating an eye-catching design for a slab in the mosaic. See photo for an example.
There are 16 slabs in the mosaic, and 16 wards in the borough [
and 17 wards in the borough, sadly two wards must share one slab], which are Bagshot, Bisley, Chobham, Frimley, Frimley Green, Heatherside, Lightwater, Mytchett and Deepcut, Old Dean, Parkside, St. Michaels, St. Pauls, Camberley Town, Watchetts, West End, and Windlesham. The competition details are:
- The mosaic is 2.4 metres in diameter, with 16 slabs each with an outer edge 47cm, inner edge 29cm and depth 45 cm. There will be a tile frame around each mosaic of 4 cm. The 16 slabs will be positioned around a 60 cm wide central circle.
- Submitted designs need to fit the slab shape.
- Submit your design on an A4 sheet (the design does not need to feature mosaic pieces).
- Write your name, contact details and ward on the reverse of your design. If associated to Surrey Heath Borough Council by work or related to someone who works for the borough, please also write this on the reverse.
- Only one entry per person, and the work must be the person’s own.
- Submit entry to the museum or council by the closing date is Sat 18th August 2012 at 12pm.
- Winners will be notified by Saturday 25th August 2012.
- Three workshops for the winning designs will be in the week beginning the 27th August 2012.
- Winners will be asked to attend a workshop in August to create their winning design.
Go on, be creative. An ideal way to occupy children during their holidays.
UPDATE: Fancy mkaing such a silly error. There are 16 wards and not 17.
