Do you or does anyone you know live in the Brechfa Forest area?

If so, please read on and get involved by completing a simple survey to access free creative workshops over the coming months.

Arts Care Gofal Celf are thrilled to announce that we have received funding from Brechfa Forest West Wind Farm Fund in order to provide arts based activities for people living in the Brechfa Forest area over the next 6 – 9 months. We would really like the project to be guided by local people so your views really matter. If you would like to take part in free creative workshops, or if you are a professional artist living in Brechfa Forest, we would love to hear from you.

One of our multi talented artists who live in Brechfa Forest will deliver some of the workshops which could range from all manner of textiles to woodcraft or nature inspired activities depending on what you might like. We have a number of artists who work with us who could deliver all sorts of creative workshops from creative writing to dance or yoga, drama, sculpture, printmaking and more. However, we would also like to engage any local professional artists who may want to get involved and deliver workshops.

We would like this project to provide a positive splash of creativity at a time where COVID-19 is still challenging communities. The project could offer access to online workshop as well as face to face workshops in line with safety measures and guidance at the time. Again we would love to know what would work best for you in order to access opportunities.

We will soon announce a short series of taster sessions just to get you started in order to try a few different art forms and have your say on what else you might like. We would like any future workshops to meet your creative bucket list so please help us to provide workshops that will inspire and support wellbeing.

If you or anyone you know would like a hard copy of the survey posted out, then please just let us know at 01267 243815. Welsh copies of the survey are available upon request.

Please share with anyone in the Brechfa area who might be interested.

Thank you very much,
