We take our inspiration from the surrounding landscape. Pengwernydd Farm is situated right on the edge of the beautiful Cambrian Mountains not far from Cardigan Bay. Whether its the farm and its animals, the wildness of the forests and waterfalls or the romantic ruins of old miners cottages and farmsteads that inspires you, its all right on our doorstep. New for 2017, sea and shore.
Pastures Workshop - Pengwernydd Farm is surrounded by pastures grazed by our cattle and sheep. Throughout the year
we have a variety of wild flowers and grasses. The foxgloves flower in the summer months and the livestock are out in the fields. You can choose to 'home in' on the detail or incorporate the wider surroundings and grazing animals.
Llantrisant Church Workshop - Overlooking Pengwernydd Farm, the little church is set on a hill top and commands stunning views over moorland and farmland dotted with remote cottages. The viewpoint can be the church and its ancient stones or the wider surrounding area.
Mountains and Red Kites Workshop - In the upland pastures of Pengwernydd Farm, we have amazing views across the Cambrian Mountains. Red Kites and Buzzards call and swoop in the skies above the farm. A rocky crag stands as a sentinel over the miners' cottages below and there is also a lake we can take inspiration from.
Romantic Ruins Workshop - The surrounding fields are dotted with ruined buildings left over from the mining. The 'romantic ruin', a little piece of history, a glimpse into the past. We will go to the site of one and use the setting in our compositions.
Animal Sketching Workshop - The animals on the farm make excellent life models, from the chickens to the horse. Sketching, then develop your ideas further.
Waterfalls, Myths and Tales Workshop - Steep wooded hills, dotted with ancient hill-forts, are cut by plunging watercourses. Experience a landscape steeped in history and legend. Look for evidence of past lives. Imagine the journeys made by pilgrims and monks. And then there's Hafod......... Be Inspired!
Sea and Shore - We have access to the beautiful Cardigan Bay. Sweeping Bays and stony remote beaches. Crashing waves and atmospheric sky's. Georgian Harbours, piers and proms. Seabirds, dolphins, seals and seashells. There's plenty to inspire.
