Criw Celf Bach takes place at Rhyl Library on one Saturday each month. These art workshops have been devised for children aged between 7 and 11 years old; sessions offer the children an opportunity to explore and experiment with a variety of techniques, themes and materials. Criw Celf Bach members have worked with a variety of professional artists, including creating cyanotypes with artist Sian Hughes, mask-making with Ruth Vintr and printing with Tara Dean. Exhibitions of the children’s artwork are held periodically; please keep an eye on this website for the latest details.
Criw Celf doesn’t always follow a theme, but this year, several of our workshops have been based on the theme of Migration, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Welsh migration to Patagonia next year. We have had several workshops where migration has provided a theme for different artists to explore with our members – they have made pocket books with artist Becky Adams, ships in bottles with Mai Thomas and created a series of migrating figures with Katie Scarlett Howard. Please see the Events pages for details of the forthcoming exhibition of this work!
We occasionally arrange trips to interesting venues. Please keep an eye on these pages for news of any special trips or events.
