History in our Hands
Thursday 28 February at 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
A free drop-in workshop with local artist Pip Lewis to create portraits of the beautiful buildings that make Haverfordwest such a unique and special place.
Using old and contemporary photographs, alongside digital applications such as google maps, simple drawing, tracing and collage techniques will build a unique picture of the town, seen through the eyes of those that live, work and play here.
Each person will create a multi-layered portrait of an individual building of their choice, which will be shown as part of a collective artwork in an exhibition accompanying the launch of Building stories – a new publication by local author Kerry Steed, who during 2017 festival week created The Poetry of Haverfordwest
Suitable for ages 7+ and all abilities. All materials provided (bring along a tablet or smartphone if you have one).
Under 12’s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
History in our hands, runs every afternoon throughout half term week and has been supported by Pembrokeshire County Council’s Haverfordwest Townscape Initiative and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
