After eighteen months of restoration work following the floods of 2015, art materials brand Derwent has reopened the Derwent Pencil Museum in Cumbria. Renowned for housing the largest coloured pencil in the world, the museum was damaged by flood water, with some artefacts from the archives ruined beyond repair. Fortunately, many were rescued and new interactive areas have been created to sit alongside them. There is also a new customised drawing facility where visitors can take part in art classes and workshops.
