The final day of the main residency brought us a talk by Mayes Creative’s own Joanna Mayes on her phd research into stars and stones, followed by a presentation of and discussion around materials from the Royal Astronomical Society Archive, with librarian and archivist Sian Prosser. A final wrap up and discussion about next steps ended the day; but we’ll meet again in a month, so this definitely isn’t the end…
The Final 2 chalkboards for the week completed; one touching upon again the atoms in our body and the other touching upon starlight!

Looking at ways of making my own Nebra disc, but using materials I have and looking at the night sky around me.
