The Wanderer

The Wanderer, Matthew Roberts.

Art Studios, Craft Workshops, creative groups, venues and  Artisan businesses will come together in a printed Directory, on this site and the Facebook Page, to show off all the fabulous things that are going on around here to everyone who is interested in having unique, hand-made, beautiful things around them. On 11th -19th of June, 2016, we will open our studios, put on exhibitions and invite the public to tour this wonderful area and visit us to learn about our art-work and buy pieces to keep.

Tawe Valley Arts Week is the opportunity for a wonderful day out; expect the unexpected, be inspired, diverted and delighted- and come home with a unique artwork of your own.

You’ll be able to meet artists in a wide variety of amazing venues, talk about their work, watch demonstrations and maybe have a go yourself. Or simply feast your eyes on a huge range of creative activity, from painting, photography, textiles, sculpture and ceramics to furniture, glass, mosaics, jewellery, digital art and much more.
