This project is a collaboration with Ulverston based artist Eleanor Chaney who will draw seven unique images of fauna and flora you might find in the Rusland valley to encourage you to do the same.
In this new project, launched in June 2020, we are posting seven unique images of fauna and flora you might find in the valley specially drawn for us by Eleanor Chaney, local Ulverston artist. We will also post her worksheets and fascinating vidoes (see panel, right) to help anyone (of any age!) who would like to have a go at drawing our seven species as well as information and hints as to where you might find our little collection out and about in the valley.
We hope you will share your past and present experiences of what you have seen in our area, especially at this time when not everyone is able to visit, and wildlife has had some time to breathe and venture out and about more.
You can post comments, a photo, a poem or even make a video onto our Facebook page, or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer!
All Eleanor's images are copyrighted. We will be delighted to see your creations in response to this collaboration but please only reproduce Eleanor's images for the purpose of this project.
