Matt & Amanda Caines – Parade of Puppets

This year as part of our Abergavenny Food Festival celebrations, we have invited artists, Matt and Amanda Caines to create something completely unique outside in front of our shop.

They are transforming their Pop -Up Stall into an extraordinary Theatre of events…

…Puppet making workshops for children and adults. All ingredients supplied for printmaking, drawing, collaging and embellishing. Just turn up and assemble your own magical puppet. With an exhibition of Matt and Amanda’s artwork, including small kinetic scrimshaw work, hand carved and engraved and larger puppet works (see images).

Don’t forget to come inside and enjoy our delicious spread!

 

the art shop 2This year we are taking part in the Crickhowell Open Studios & Galleries event over the May bank holiday weekend. Come and join us on Saturday from 9.15am-5pm, Sunday 11am-3pm and Monday 10am-4pm…

Hopefully the sun will shine and we will be outside with our bunting, musicians, home-made cake and elderflower cordial. Come inside and see our current exhibition Everything Familiar Up Close.

On Sunday, listen to jigs and reels played live by Hairpin Bend. Fiddles, mandolin, guitar, whistle, flute, mandola and harmonicas create beautiful, evocative Irish traditional music.
