Podcasting, Printmaking & Darkroom Photography

If you’re interested in joining, you must be available for all 6 days of the summer school.

Find out more info and book on the Podcasting, Printmaking and Darkroom photography sessions.

Ceramics

In the workshops, you will learn lots of fun processes that go into making pottery, explore decoration techniques and get to design and create your own project which will be fired in the kiln at the Llanover Hall ceramics studio. A perfect opportunity to get creative, have fun and do something different this summer!

  • Dates: Tuesday 2 – Thursday 4 August 2022
  • Time: 10am – 4pm
  • Location: Llanover Hall Arts Centre, Romilly Road, Cardiff, CF5 1FH

  • Lead Artist: Lucy Dickson

If you’re interested in joining, you must be available for all 3 days of the summer school.

Find out more info and book on to the Ceramics sessions.

Drawing, Costume, Collage & Theatre Sets

These sessions will use drawing to explore the theme of a sci-fi epic and create a still-life city of the future using found objects. Participants will design and make the costumes for the characters living in this environment. The final artwork: A figure in outer-space, will combine protagonist and place to develop a final image with a narrative that will play out either across one work or within a series.

  • Time: 10am – 4pm
  • Location: St Vincent’s Ely Bridge, Mail Road, Cardiff, CF5 4AG
