Rebecca Loncraine, 1974-2016

We are very sad to report that writer Rebecca Loncraine died at her parents’ home in Cwmdu on Saturday 17 September after a long illness.  Rebecca was a dear friend, a valued colleague and a key member of our artistic team who brought passion, sensitivity and energy to her work.  Her Creative Writing for Wellbeing workshops and projects had a tangible and lasting impact on those who she taught and worked with and she will be very greatly missed.

Rebecca played a key role in developing Caban Sgriblio, a wellbeing project for young people, and this project has recently secured Children in Need funding for the next 3 years.  We are so grateful for this lasting contribution to our work and in the New Year, we plan to hold an event to acknowledge her legacy.

We will post again when we have more details and in the meantime, we’ve illustrated Rebecca’s impact on our work through some examples of her work with young people.  Here are extracts from a short publication of poetry by girls who took part in Caban Sgriblio with Rebecca in 2014.

 

Time can slip away

 Time can slip away

Memories can fade

Days just turn into nights.

 

Doors can close

Thoughts become clouded

Dark can turn into light.

 

Sad days can bring you down

While others may not

But a journey is always in sight.

 

You feel you’re getting worse

You’re sinking at first

But things might not

 

If you hold your head up high

Have someone by your side

And things will just become right.

LN

 

What The River Usk Hears

The River Usk hears birds singing up in the trees
and planes flying across the bright blue sky.
It hears rocks tumbling from the eroding soil,

And summer wind.

It hears the slow crashing of waves,
and friendships being created and broken.
It hears cameras clicking,

a rugby match being played,

the rain bouncing off leaves
and squirrels dashing from one branch to the next.
It hears the stuttering engines of cars leaving town
and the splash as the Heron catches its food.
It hears the vague pitter-patter of rain.
It hears the secrets people tell.
It hears crashing along the river banks,

the howling of the wind at night,

the cold wind whistle
and moonlight arriving.
It hears the rustle of the birds dancing in the trees
and a work of art being painted on the riverbank.

Caban

We are delighted that Caban Sgriblio has secured three years of funding support from Children in Need to work with young people in schools and in the community during 2016-19.

BinocularORIEL DAVIES GALLERY EXHIBITION
Binocular: disturbance

Creative Network member Penny Hallas has been collaborating with Suffolk-based Caroline Wright on Binocular: disturbance.

What results is a collection of drawings, an exchange and display of objects, parallel walking, mapping of locations and other works.

The project is supported by Test Bed, Oriel Davies Gallery’s special programme which showcases new and experimental works. The exhibition runs from 22nd October until 25 February 2017 at Oriel Davies Gallery, Swansea.

unknown-1SPOTLIGHT ON: KATHRYN JARMAN

Kathryn Jarman is a Creative Network member specialising in textile art.

I am a fully qualified teacher but now work full time on my business. I initially did traditional Welsh quilting out of Welsh flannel and made other products but have now progressed to being more arts focused.

I am in the process of making a range of figurines in Traditional Welsh costume from the 1800’s onwards, with regional variations. Each county in Wales has their own interpretation of Traditional Welsh Costume and my figurines will display this. Some of them are on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/kathrynjarmantextiles/?fref=ts.   I have had a couple of my figurines exhibited at the Oriel Gallery in Crickhowell and am sourcing new venues to be able to display my work. 

I am passionate about teaching sewing in schools and have been working on writing a scheme of work to correlate with the current Welsh Education reforms due to be implemented in 2018 under the ‘Curriculum for Wales, Curriculum for Life’ remit. Some many children don’t have the opportunity to learn these basic skills anymore and I would like to do something about it!

You can get in touch with Kathryn via bopeepquilts@yahoo.co.uk.

Traces is an exhibition of new work at The Tabernacle, Talgarth, by Susan Milne, Katherine Sheers and Helen Watkins. The artists have come together through a mutual love of textiles and collectively they occupy the practices of art, craft, design and the spaces in between. The exhibition draws a thread through both personal and communal history; bringing to light the cloth we wear close to our bodies during a lifetime and the textile fragments of our ancestors buried beneath the surface.

The artists apply a range of processes and techniques including embroidery, drawing, construction, stitching, and dyeing. Susan unearths decaying remnants of garments and archeological layers of human presence in our landscape and makes works in paper and collage. Katherine creates exquisite silk and lace specimens of concealment dyed with the purple fruits of local hedgerows. Helen’s banners of natural colour and woven texture are embroidered with the marks of human interaction in the Black Mountains.

Although each artist has a defined individual practice, there is an intriguing synergy amongst the three. The work of one artist imparts a further layer of meaning to another’s, and produces a cohesive and quietly powerful exhibition that responds sensitively to the unique interior of The Tabernacle.

Rebecca Spooner
Arts Development Manager

 

 

SUSAN MILNE: Artist working with ideas about land and the development of the landscape. Current work: disintegration and fragmentation of organic and inorganic matter. The work, relating to garments and textiles, is made with mixed media, paper and fibers, and derives from drawings made from archeological fragments and museum artefacts. www.susanmilne.co.uk

KATHERINE SHEERS: Textile artist whose work questions the fundamental aspects of human emotion and how they relate to contemporary ideals of womanhood. Current work: specimens of concealment and vulnerability. Utilising the slow, ancient processes of natural dyeing and hand-stitching to colour, mark, reinforce and disguise upcycled silk, lace and cotton. www.katherinesheers.com

HELEN WATKINS: Textile artist and designer whose work is informed and inspired by the rites and rhythms of the surrounding agricultural landscape. Current work: natural plant dyed fabrics of linen, wool and silk; cutting, turning, crossing, joining, marking, represent an active, mindful and meditative intervention.

ART AUCTION 2015

Thank  you!

£15,000 raised to support AAW projects for young people

 

Art Auction 2015Our 2015 Art Auction took place on Friday 6th March in the ballroom of The Angel Hotel, Abergavenny.  This biennial event raises money for our community projects with vulnerable groups and individuals, show-cases the talents of leading contemporary artists in Wales, as well as being a lively and fun evening for our guests. Please scroll down to view artworks that are still available to purchase. 

 

Art Auction 2015This year the auction raised £15,000 towards ‘Caban’, our new community project focused on teenagers and mental health.  We will use writing, drawing and making to help improve the wellbeing of young people.  Our pilot projects have demonstrated strong evidence that arts participation helps improve quality of life and we are now working closely with local mental health services to extend provision. Click here for short films from the pilot project of Caban.

 

Art Auction 2015The 2015 auction was dedicated to the memory of sculptor Catharine Marr-Johnson, former trustee and Patron of our Children and Young People’s programme, who sadly died in May 2014. Catharine continued to be an inspiration in the way she continued to draw, paint and create despite the increasing physical challenges presented by a diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease.

 

 

Art Auction 2015Should you have any questions about any aspect of the event, or would like to know more about our community work, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
