Dip Pen Nib Set
We have put together small sets and selections to make your shopping easy!
Of course these are just a few ideas… if you have someone particular in mind, why not ask us to tailor make a kit or set just for them from the vast array of materials available at The Art Shop & Chapel. Not just for artists but anyone who appreciates really good quality products.
Alongside our specialist artists’ materials we have writing paper, fountain pen and calligraphy sets, books for everyone, collections of papers (handmade Indian and Japanese for example), wrapping papers, cards, calendars and lots more.
Visit us at The Art Shop or online.
*Not forgetting at the Chapel, on Market Street you’ll find a whole section just for children…
Getting ready for Christmas…
Make your own garlands from brightly coloured, vibrant Crepe Papers threaded together with ribbons or gold twine. Gild real apples with antique gold wax ‘Rub & Buff‘, cut stars from black paper and touch up with gold.
You’ll find plenty of ideas and all the materials you need at The Art Shop and at the Chapel.

When we return we will be preparing for an exhibition upstairs at the Chapel from the children’s performance ‘A Winter Wildness’ that took place on 22nd December – life sized trees, leaves, costumes, design worksheets and a video …and amongst these trees will be our next musical event – Bragod – ‘In Praise of Mid-Winter’, on Friday 22nd January ‘with bold, ritual songs, ballads and medieval poetry and a magical Arthurian episode celebrating the holly and the ivy.’
So much to look forward to, we will keep you in touch

A wonderful group of Mari Lwyd revellers joined in upstairs at the Chapel on Sunday for the Abergavenny Christmas Food & Drink Fair celebrations with mulled apple, music and poetry ….
Artist, Sarah Rhys, gave a short talk about this ancient Celtic custom, and showed a small selection of drawings and prints, alongside paintings by the inimitable William Brown. Traditional Welsh songs were sung and the procession made its way into town and through the Market Hall.
Thank you all for coming!
