Embellished stories from Rhiannon Williams
2nd December – 20th January 2018
At 1pm on the 2nd Dec there will be an ‘in conversation’ with artist Rhiannon Williams
Rhiannon Williams embellishes stories. Using embroidery techniques, she stitches together stories of people.
Rhiannon will also be running a series of workshops to run alongside the exhibition.
Into the Woods
A small curated exhibition of makers who delve deep into the woods to celebrate the beasts and insects who inhabit it. Work will include ceramics, textiles, print, mixed media sculpture and curiosities.
Naomi Greaves has always been a collector of unusual things, most of which can be found in her studio. While some items hold sentimental attachments, others she purchased can be quite peculiar and macabre. A large part of her collection is a library of old books full of engravings and woodcuts.
Fashion meets nature. This is how Claire describes her jewellery. She combines anodised aluminium with sterling silver to create several contemporary ranges that feature flora and fauna, and reflect her love for pattern and illustration.

The Gwent Wildlife Trust photography competition encourages everyone to capture some of their favourite wildlife moments on film. Each year brings new creativity and techniques, which when applied produces some beautifully atmospheric results. The entries demonstrate a great deal of skill and, in many cases, huge amounts of patience showing how committed people are to observing and recording the wonderful wildlife in Gwent.
