SUMMER has well and truly arrived at Oriel y Parc Gallery and St Davids Visitor Centre, where a craft market and an exciting program of children’s workshops will take place over the next few weeks.
Building on the success of last year’s pop-up stalls, the attraction run by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority will host a summer craft market in its courtyard from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday August 6. Admission is free and the event offers a wonderful opportunity to discover the perfect gift or souvenir, while supporting local artists, artisans and producers.
There will also be plenty to entertain younger visitors, with free traditional fairground games in the picnic area and a chance to participate in a collaborative collage to celebrate our national park. A Summer Fun Trail will also take place during the event at a cost of £2 per child, small price included.
The creative fun is not limited to a day, however. Throughout the summer holidays, children can join talented local artists at Oriel y Parc’s weekly arts and crafts workshops. These will take place every Wednesday in August.
On Wednesday August 3, Elly Morgan will lead a series of mud and clay creation workshops, while August 10 offers the opportunity for young people to draw nature from sound and movement under the tutelage of Hannah Rounding up and creating their own nature book. Kate Evans will take the reins on Wednesday August 17 with sessions on weaving with recycled materials, and on Wednesday August 24 Hannah Rounding will return to lead watercolor workshops, using repurposed household items.
The final arts and crafts workshop will be a drop-in session led by Summer Ranger on Wednesday, August 31, where attendees will have the chance to make their own bee bombs.
Claire Bates, Visitor Services Manager at Oriel y Parc, said: “We look forward to welcoming visitors of all ages this summer, as well as helping local businesses and connecting more young people to the world. art.
“Reservation is essential for all workshops. There is no age limit, but we ask that each child be accompanied by a responsible adult. Seats can be reserved online free of charge for accompanying adults.
