More than 10 Welsh arts and craft makers from Platform One – a local network of artists from around Brecon Beacons National Park - will be exhibiting and selling their work at a showcase exhibition which will include leather, pewter, jewellery, photography, paintings, wood turning and cards at the National Park Visitor Centre, near Libanus from Saturday 23rd October until Sunday 31st October.
The event runs alongside Brecon Arts Week – an extravaganza of workshops, demonstrations, ‘meet the artist’ events, private viewings and exhibitions which is taking place in the town of Brecon during the same week.
Welcoming the Arts and Crafts Festival, Brecon Beacons National Park Authority Member Champion for Visitor Centres, Cllr Gareth Ratcliffe said the event was another opportunity for the visitors to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park and pick up early Christmas presents made by creative artists based in and around the Park.
“Brecon Beacons National Park Authority is delighted to host another Arts and Crafts Festival at the National Park Visitor Centre. This is a wonderful week for talented artists in the Brecon Beacons to showcase their unique work. Brecon will be packed with exciting art projects and workshops for children and adults but there’s also a chance to come along to our Visitor Centre, wind down and relax, whilst taking in our spectacular scenery. We hope everyone enjoys what the town of Brecon has to offer during the October school holiday period.” he said.
With its idyllic setting overlooking Pen y Fan, when you have finished perusing the crafts you can enjoy the National Park Visitor Centre and tearoom open daily from 9:30am - 5pm. Admission is free – although there is a small charge for parking.
