Heddiw, cynhaliwyd y gweithdy cyntaf ar gyfer creu fflach amgueddfa yng Nghynhadledd Cymdeithas yr Amgueddfeydd ym mis Hydref yng Nghanolfan y Mileniwm yn Amgueddfa Stori Caerdydd. Daeth staff o Amgueddfa Stori Caerdydd, Amgueddfa Cymru a Chronfa Dreftadaeth y Loteri ynghyd gydag aelodau o Fforwm Ieuenctid a gwirfoddolwyr Amgueddfa Cymru ac Amgueddfa Stori Caerdydd i brofi’r broses angenrheidiol ar gyfer creu fflach amgueddfa.

Cytunodd y rhai a fynychodd y byddai defnyddio Caerdydd fel thema yn syniad da. Bydd Beth yw eich stori Caerdydd? Neu beth mae Caerdydd yn ei olygu ichi? Yn rhoddi cyfleoedd  i bobl roddi eu barn am Gaerdydd- prif ddinas Cymru, hyd yn oes os nad ydynt erioed wedi ymweld â’r Ddinas. Bydd yn cynnwys pobl sydd wedi eu geni a’u magu yn y Ddinas neu’r rhai hynny sydd newydd gyrraedd Caerdydd am y tro cyntaf erioed; y rhai sy’n mynychu cynhadledd Cymdeithas yr Amgueddfeydd a theuluoedd yn ymweld â Chanolfan y Mileniwm fel rhan o Ŵyl Amgueddfeydd Cymru.

Roedd proses drefnus wedi ei gosod lle'r oedd pawb yn cymryd tro i ysgrifennu, tynnu llun o’u gwrthrych, cael tynnu llun o’u hunain a chael eu ffilmio yn siarad am eu stori Caerdydd.

Mewn awr, crëwyd amgueddfa syml, ar raddfa fechan. 12 gwrthrych, 8 stori, 7 voxpop a 12 llun oedd i gyd yn dweud rhywbeth gwahanol am Gaerdydd a beth mae’n ei olygu, neu wedi ei olygu i’r rhai hynny oedd yn cymryd rhan, unai heddiw neu yn y gorffennol.

Arran Rees, Curadur Casgliadau Amgueddfa Stori Caerdydd rannodd ei wrthrych a’i stori gyntaf.

Tro pawb arall oedd hi wedyn, ac o fewn 30 munud, cafwyd llu o wrthrychau gwahanol o bice ar y maen i ffosil oedd yn datgelu rhywbeth am Gaerdydd. Defnyddiodd y person rannodd y Pice ar y Maen y cacennau fel ffordd i ddangos ei hoffter o’r stondin ym Marchnad Caerdydd a sut yr oedd yn meddwl am Gaerdydd a Chymru gan iddi ddod i’w hoffi er gwaetha’r ffaith ei bod yn casáu ffrwythau wedi eu sychu. Gwrthrych arall oedd modrwy oedd yn symbolaidd o gyfeillgarwch ac amseroedd da ym Mhrifysgol Caerdydd. Rhannodd person arall ei phrofiad fel perfformwraig ym Mardi Gras Caerdydd yn 2013. Roedd pawb eisiau darllen storiâu pawb arall ac ysgogodd y gwrthrychau drafodaeth am Gaerdydd – y da a’r drwg, presennol a gorffennol.

Roedd y gweithdy’n hynod o ddefnyddiol. Cadarnhaodd y grŵp fod thema fwy eang yn well, ac yn fwy agored, gyda’r potensial o apelio at fwy o bobl i gyfrannu na rhywbeth rhy benodol. Roedd technoleg syml yn gweithio, a bydd yn gallu creu diddordeb a thrafodaeth – hyd yn oed os nad yw technoleg yn gweithio.

Nawr bod y syniad wedi ei brofi, rydym yn barod ar gyfer ein gweithdy nesaf. Bydd gweithdy agored, eto yn Amgueddfa Stori Caerdydd, 30 Awst 11yb-1yh. Ymunwch a ni a rhannu beth mae Caerdydd yn ei olygu ichi.

"Our Cats" by Harrison Weir [1889]

Postiwyd gan Jennifer Evans ar 15 Awst 2014

We recently participated in #MuseumCats Day on Twitter and this involved a quick search through our holdings for some interesting pictures of cats to Tweet and what a gem we have found! Please enjoy this selection of wonderful and [in some cases] bizarre illustrations of cats from the book "Our Cats and all about them" written and illustrated by Harrison Weir in 1889. 

My personal favourites are the surreal disembodied heads [see above], "Sylvie" [she of the magnificent moustaches] and the Russian cat who [in my opinion] has a most unsettling human expression.


Weir was a very interesting character; he was born in 1824 on May 5th [d.1906], and is known as "The Father of the Cat Fancy”. He organizied the first ever cat show in England, at The Crystal Palace, London in July 1871 where he and his brother served as judges. In 1887 he founded the National Cat Club and was its first President and Show Manager until his resignation in 1890. Our Cats was the first published pedigree cat book.

Weir was employed, for many years, as a draughtsman and engraver for the Illustrated London News as well as many other publications and in his lifetime he both wrote and illustrated other books such as The Poetry of Nature (1867), Every Day in the Country (1883) and Animal Studies, Old and New (1885). In 1845 he exhibited his first painting at the British Institution and during his career he was an occasional exhibitor at the Royal Academy.

He was a keen animal fancier, an experienced breeder of cats, carrier pigeons, and poultry and for thirty years often acted as a judge at the principal pigeon and poultry shows. In 1903 he wrote and illustrated the exhaustive book Our Poultry and All About Them.

This book was bequeathed to the Library back in May 1916 along with around 500 other books by the Welsh artist, champion of Wales’ cultural heritage and one of the founding fathers of Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, Thomas Henry Thomas.

Along with the books, Thomas also bequeathed his entire catalogue of prints, drawings and watercolours to the Museum.

summer art activities

Postiwyd gan Sian Lile-Pastore ar 14 Awst 2014

As I am now working in St Fagans National Museum and National Museum Cardiff, I can share loads more works of art and design! It also means that I've had a lot of help preparing and delivering the art workshops, so thank you to Heloise,Liz, Sally, Ellie, the two Catrin's, Marged, Marsli, Tracey, Angharad and Hywel!

In St Fagans this summer we've been asking visitors to design a new play area for us (we will be building a new play area in the near future as part of the redevelopments) and we have had the most amazing designs and ideas. I think my favourite are the fireman's pole shaped like a worm and a tree house that explodes with sweets every five seconds. Lots of people want tree houses, zip wires and monkey bars!

At National Museum Cardiff we have two sessions running this summer, one is based on the new Richard Wilson exhibition and the other is based on the Wales Visitation exhibition. For the Richard Wilson art activity we are asking visitors to look closely at the paintings and to create their own landscape based on them, things we are asking them to look out for are the way that Wilson uses colours in the foreground, middle ground and background; his use of 'framing trees' and the way that he often has people taking part in activities in the foreground. The landscapes the visitors make can then be all joined together to create one long beautiful Wilsonesque landscape! Here are a few images of what's been happening so far...

For the workshop based on the Wales Visitation exhibition we are taking families to look at some of the paintings and objects on display and asking them to create a landscape using image and text. They can use any words they want, but we have also been providing them with quotes from the Allen Ginsberg poem (from which the exhibition gets it's title) as there are such gorgeous and visual parts to the poem, such as:

"Valleys breathe, heaven and earth move together,

daisies push inches of yellow air, vegetables tremble,

grass shimmers green

sheep speckle the mountainside, revolving their jaws with empty eyes,

horses dance in the warm rain"

I-Spy Micrarium Touch Screen (VADU part II)

There is an exhibition showing at National Museum Cardiff called: I-Spy…Nature (until April 2015). One of the touch screens (picture 1) focuses on a selection of diverse, interesting and beautiful biological and geological slides from the Museum’s Natural History Collections. This blog is about the small aspects of the touch screen that I was involved with; plain and simple. 

Resources & Outlines

  • One general overview image of 36 slides
  • 12 very high resolution images of some of those slides
  • 27 inch touch screen
  • Complement an actual Micrarium, which would be displayed neatly above the touch screen
  • Incorporate a Victoriana style
  • Target audience: young folk

Flourishes

The high resolution slide images were always the prize, therefore it seemed obvious to sort out the zoom features first. Using the Javascript version of Zoomify (other javascript frameworks are available) gave us a good foundation to work on. We just needed to tap into their Zoomify Javascript code a little, then add our own layer of Javascript and graphical flourishes to make the design fit in with the exhibition outlines.   

All the controls were laid out in plain sight, hopefully to reduce any learning curve when approaching the interactive; and since the touch screen is quite large (27 inches) we had the space.

Five additional features were added to the zoom screen (picture 4):

  • Zoom controls
  • Navigation controls
  • Home button
  • Information button
  • Change language (English/Welsh) 

n.b. where possible I tried to avoid using words to describe button functions, hence why the home button is only an image, but this idea fell down a little when it became clear you couldn’t avoid a word or two to help the visitor work out what specimen they were observing.

Into the Arms of a Microscope

Once or twice someone may have caught me saying things like: “Plagioclase Feldspar” or “Olivine”. Anyhow, part of the fun with looking at slides is the process of selecting a new slide, I thought so anyway - you were never sure what would be on the other side of the glass.

I wanted to avoid the conventional method of changing between images, which is usually to include a ‘next’ and ‘previous’ button; so tried to incorporate some of my vague science memories with a quick reconnaissance mission (picture 5) to see the microscope that was being prepped for the exhibition.

Since there were 36 lower resolution images on the home screen, but twelve high resolution images on the slide selection screen, it gave some space to move a simple microscope stand into view, which provided the excuse to animate the microscope arms and float the slides back and forth. The iris transition between the microscope slide view and the zoom view is loosely based on the idea of looking down a microscope eyepiece.   

Intermittent Contact

The interactive was built on HTML and Javascript with animations mainly driven by CSS. Due to the amount of images used in this interactive (up to 120MB), the project was exported from Amgueddfacms CMS into a standalone ZIP file then installed onto the exhibition PC - this improves the interactive response times, since it doesn’t have to wait for any image files to download over a network connection.

We’ve been using Firefox for a while as its platform independent and has neat little add-ons (R-Kiosk and Block Site). In this case, the operating system is Windows 7, with a locked down user account which only has access to Firefox and the touch screen drivers.

Usually we use Google Analytics to record button events, to give us an indication of how much the interactives are being used, but Google Analytics is designed to work with regular domain websites, which is not the case when running locally from simple hard drive files. Therefore the button events are recorded by the web server through AJAX calls.

Thinking about it again, it might be more efficient to store Javascript events in the browser’s HTML5 web storage throughout the day and only send it back to the web server when the computer boots up in the morning. Therefore, only bother the web server once a day, rather than hundreds of times a day.

I've included a short demo video for posterity:

Fifty years of a golden reign: a souvenir of the Queen's Jubilee [1887]

Postiwyd gan Jennifer Evans ar 1 Awst 2014

Well now, here’s  a pretty thing…

A souvenir booklet celebrating the fifty year reign of Queen Victoria. It was published in 1887 by Eyre & Spottiswoode, who were the official printers to Her Majesty at that time.

Our volunteer [Alison] has been working her way through old pamphlet boxes and all manner of forgotten things and very kindly passes to me items that are interesting, unusual or just lovely to see, and this one falls into that last category.

It measures 11 x 13.5 cm, has 16 pages and, our accessions register states that it was donated to us in May 1935 by a Mr Charles Barnwell Esq.

The book also contains a poem written by Lord Tennyson especially for the occasion. Tennyson had been Poet Laureate since 1850 [after William Wordsworth's death] and held the position until his own death in 1892.

Interestingly, Eyre & Spottiswoode [established in 1845], went on to merge with Methuen Publishing in the 1970s.

Golwg ar y Casgliadau Diwydiant

Postiwyd gan Mark Etheridge ar 29 Gorffennaf 2014

Croesawyd amrywiaeth o gaffaeliadau newydd i’r casgliadau Diwydiant a Thrafnidiaeth ym mis Gorffennaf eleni eto. Ymhlith yr eitemau newydd mae -  

Offer mesur danheddog a ddefnyddiwyd yn chwarel Dinorwig i farcio/mesur llechi to cyn eu torri. Safonwyd enwau a maint llechi to ym 1738 pan ddyfeisiodd y Cadfridog Hugh Warburton (cydberchennog Ystâd y Penrhyn ar y pryd) system enwi llechi o wahanol faint. Gan eu mesur mewn modfeddi, rhoddwyd enwau ‘menywod bonheddig’ i’r llechi fel Empresses, Duchesses Mawr, Viscountesses, a Ladis Llydan. Buan y daeth y rhain yn dermau safonol y diwydiant, er bod y meintiau yn amrywio o dro i dro ac o ardal i ardal. Mae cyfanswm o ddau ddeg tri ‘dant’ ar y ffon fesur sy’n 26 modfedd o hyd. Ar y pen mae tri ‘dant’ ddwy fodfedd ar wahân (yn y pen agosaf at yr hoelen) tra bod y dau ddeg saith ‘dant’ arall un fodfedd ar wahân.

Ffon fesur hir allai gael ei defnyddio i farcio a mesur llechi mawr maint ‘Queens’. Y llechen leiaf allai gael ei marcio gan y ffon hon yw'r ‘Narrow Ladies’ (16 modfedd o hyd neu fyw). 

 

 

 Ar y fforch dostio hon mae llun o löwr ac arysgrif 'BIG PIT BLAENAVON'. Byddai’r fforch yn cael ei gwerthu yn siop Amgueddfa Big Pit yn niwedd y 1980au/dechrau’r 1990au. Bellach mae Big Pit yn un o wyth amgueddfa genedlaethol Amgueddfa Cymru. 

 

 Potel wag o chwisgi un brag ‘Madeira’ Penderyn yn ei bapur gwreiddiol. Lansiwyd y cwmni yn 2000 fel y Welsh Whisky Company, cyn newid yr enw’n ddiweddarach i Penderyn Distillery gan fod y cwmni wedi’i leoli ym mhentref Penderyn, y tu fewn i ffin ddeheuol Parc Cenedlaethol Bannau Brycheiniog. Lansiwyd chwisgi un brag Penderyn gan Dywysog Cymru ar 1 Mawrth 2004 yn Neuadd Dewi Sant Caerdydd. Caiff ei aeddfedu i ddechrau mewn casgenni bourbon cyn ei aeddfedu ymhellach mewn barriques Madeira arbennig.

 

Cwmni rheilffordd Neath and Brecon a gynhyrchodd y dystysgrif cyfranddaliad hon gwerth £10. Awdurdodwyd y rheilffordd gan Ddeddf Seneddol ym 1862 a dechreuwyd cludo glo i Gastell Nedd dan yr enw Dulais Valley Mineral Railway. Gwnaed y gwaith hyrwyddo ac adeiladu gan y contractiwr John Dickson ac ef dderbyniodd y dystysgrif hon. Wedi cael caniatâd i ymestyn y rheilffordd i Aberhonddu newidiwyd yr enw i’r Neath and Brecon Railway.  

 

Dau DVD yw’r eitem olaf. Ffilm am drychineb Glofa Albion ym 1894 wedi’i chreu gan staff a disgybl yn Ysgol Uwchradd Pontypridd yw’r cyntaf. Teitl yr ail yw ‘Memories of Old Clydach’ ac mae’n gasgliad o ffotograffau, dogfennau ac atgofion gan drigolion yr ardal yn y 1940au a’r 1950au. Mae un adran yn trafod Glofa Clydach Merthyr a gweithfeydd tunplat Players.

'Made in Roath' take some of the Museum’s specimens on a day out to Chapter

For this year’s Art Carbootique at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff, 'Made in Roath' were lucky enough to be able to work with Annette and Jules, the natural science conservators at the Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales in Cathays Park.

The National Museum of Wales has a vast collection of approximately 2000 taxidermy specimens most of which are not on display, and some of which present interesting curatorial challenges because of their history and the stories they tell. Having long been fascinated by the stuffed animal collection on display in the Natural History gallery at the museum, we felt really privileged to be invited behind the scenes and view the specimens in storage.

This was an amazing experience; the conservator’s stores are wonderful -  heartbreaking and fascinating in equal measure. We decided that our mission would be to make a ‘museum’ in our caravan of a selection of these unseen animals, allowing them to temporarily escape the museum archive and be seen by the public. In this context, the specimen is not just being viewed as a singular object but as part of a wider culture, referencing human practices such as hunting, shipping and collecting happening in the Victorian period, but which are still practiced today. Furthermore, a consideration of the specimen’s history within the museum itself, with its changing site,  politics and attitudes, exposes how wider socio-political forces have shaped the specimen’s display, reception and curation at the local level of the museum. Jules and Annette were really helpful and accommodating when we told them what we wanted to do, they went up to Nantgarw to the stores there and selected some more specimens to add to the collection, many of which had not been displayed for many years.

We installed the work, with a lot of help from Jules, and drove over to Chapter – there is something very surreal about towing a caravan full of stuffed animals through central Cardiff on a rainy Sunday Morning, but it was worth it. The response from the public was great, both adults and children have such a fascination for taxidermy, the exhibition was a big success, we’d also photographed the animals and made masks to give to visitors, so the animals had another opportunity to ‘escape’. Although the emphasis was on fun, we had expected to get some criticism with people possibly disapproving of the museums stuffed animals, but apart from some healthy and thought provoking discussion about the way human beings treat animals, it was a hugely enjoyable day. Thanks to AC-NMW, especially Annette and Jules, for making it happen.

9 DAYS TO GO! A VIDEO OF FRAMING UP A LITHOGRAPH PRINT

Fideo gan Maria del Mar Mateo, gyda Richard Wright.

Welcome again!

 

We are in the final stretch of concluding this interesting and amazing project. We have been working hard during the last few weeks mounting and framing the 66 lithograph prints to have them ready for the exhibition The Great War: Britain’s Efforts and Ideals on the 2nd August at National Museum Cardiff.

In the following video you will enjoy the framing process carried out by our colleague Richard. As you can see it is a delicate procedure and the framer needs to be really clean and gentile with the work of art.

 

We have had the 66 frames specially made and stained by a local frame maker. The scratch resistant Perspex* we have used had to be washed with soap and water to remove all traces of adhesive before being taped into the frame. Conservation framing is about making a sealed package to protect the work of art from the outside environment whilst making sure that the content of the package are all up to conservation standards.

 

Once the Perspex is fitted in the frame, we clean it very well with glass cleaner and anti-static cloth being sure that is completely clean and we don’t want to scratch the Perspex. Then we put the mount with the work which is already free of any fluff over the surface in the frame. After that, we put in the backboard and keep it all together using a framer’s gun. Lastly we seal the frame with gum brown paper tape.

 

Don’t forget to join us next Saturday 2nd August for the opening of the show!

 

 

*Perspex: acrylic material is useful because it is light and unlikely to break on impact. However, these materials do scratch more easily and because of static, should never be used to glaze pastels, charcoal, chalks, or friable material
