Create With Slate

2nd March 2019

10am- 4pm

With Dave Stephen.

After a short talk about the geology and the history of the Welsh slate industry, you will move on to the practical methods of hand-working slate.

Using traditional techniques, you will create an object (either practical such as a mirror, or more abstract, such as a picture or wall hanging) to take home. Release your innate creativity and have fun working with your hands and this beautiful and bountiful local material!
