To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Cumberland Pencil Museum Derwent have turned to their archives!

The pencil museum, in Keswick, in the heart of the English Lake District opened in 1981 and to celebrate its 30th anniversary Derwent has created a special edition ‘Retro’ tin. It takes its inspiration from Derwent’s packaging of yesteryear and features a vintage style drawing, by Tony Hogan, of Derwentwater, Queen of the Lakes, which historically featured on Cumberland Pencil Company packaging.

The ‘Retro’ tin contains 12 classic Derwent Watercolour Pencils in their original livery of individually coloured barrels.

To mark its anniversary the Museum is holding a special two day celebration on the 29th & 30th May. They have a host of events lined up including free artist workshops and demonstrations, galleries of artist’s drawings, competitions, raffles, children’s activities and lots more.

It is sure to be a fun packed weekend for all and is completely free so come along and help to celebrate the museum’s anniversary in style!

The Derwent ‘Retro’ tin of Watercolour Pencils is available from all good art shops and The Cumberland Pencil Museum priced £17.99 RRP.
