An important part of the Gwanwyn Festival each year is the Community Grant Scheme Project which enables small community groups to put on art events to promote creativity in older age. Carrog Craft Club in Denbighshire were able to apply for a grant to put on a creative writing and art workshop.
The work combined print making with creative writing about people and places dear to the craft club members. They looked at medieval illuminated manuscripts like the White Book of Rhydderch and the Book of Kells for inspiration, and their colourful work was displayed in Carrog Village Hall for everyone to enjoy.
The members had a great day and made lively art works which evoked loved ones and memories that were clearly very important to them. The session was delivered bilingually and the group invited residents from Glyndyfrdwy, Corwen and Bryneglwys for this special event.
