THE Lake District's home of Arts and Crafts, Blackwell, will be given a colourful make over this weekend.

Coinciding with The Light Within exhibition at the attraction, near Windermere, artists Griet Beyeart and Paul Miller will be working with year 10 art and design students from Kirkbie Kendal School to project a live light show onto the exterior walls of Blackwell at night.

Beyeart and Miller blend digital technology with traditional glass making techniques, by layering and projecting audio and visual recordings onto sculptures.

On Friday 16, the students will work with the artists to replicate this process in preparation for the main event the following day.

Students will earn an Arts Award Explore, one of a range of unique qualifications encouraging young people to grow as artists and arts leaders.

They will collect recordings and learn about audio processing and 3D projection mapping. The exclusive time they will spend with the artists, whilst in the impressive setting of Blackwell will offer the students a unique and inspirational experience.

During the event on Saturday 17, students will use a mixing board to blend sounds and project the visuals they have produced live onto the exterior walls of Blackwell. The artists will also be present for this event assisting and guiding to produce a memorable experience for all that attend.

The house will also be open to offer visitors the rare opportunity to explore Blackwell after hours.

For one night only the admission will be by donation.

Light Up Blackwell takes place at 9pm on Saturday June 17, and admission is free.
