In residence- Nant y Coy

Back home after a week in Pembrokeshire, meeting new people, talking bees with beekeepers from the other side of the UK ( what a different story!) and taking time to work on a new project.
The rain kept off for a few days- long enough to walk and sketch from the surrounding landscape- fabulous views from the top of 'Maiden Castle' and picturesque farmhouses and barns tucked in the wooded valleys.

West Ford Farm

Poll Cairn and Maiden Castle

It seemed the ideal opportunity to experiment with linocut-something I had not done for some years- reasonably quick and easy to print.

Nant y Coy Arts have a different artist/craftmaker installed in their studio each week throughout the summer. There is easy parking, fabulous local walks and a great cafe for afterwards  at the same location. A gallery shows work by Margaret Merritt- not to be missed are her mixed media landscapes -a joy of light and colour.

In Residence- Nant y Coy Arts

We are off to Nant y Coy Arts at Treffgarne Gorge  for our third week at this wonderful location. It gives us a great opportunity to work immersed in the landscape without the usual interruptions. Its always great to meet new people and talk with them about working techniques and our work in general.
Anyone in the area is welcome to join us for the day - there is a cafe on site and lots of fabulous landscape from which to find inspiration.
