Volunteers are warmly invited to join Bettina Reeves for the 2017 Abergavenny Food Festival art project.  Bettina, who retires this summer from her position as senior tutor for Theatre Design at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, has chosen chickens for this year’s art project, a theme last visited in 2008 “We will be crafting chickens from withy and willow, paper and fabric and fluttering amongst these beauties will be native butterflies of silk”.

The project takes place in the Arts Alive Wales studio over 15 intensive days from 29 August to 13 September, 9.30am to 5.30pm and will be installed in Abergavenny Market Hall in time for the Festival weekend on 16/17 September.  This hugely enjoyable and rewarding project is open to volunteers  of all abilities aged over 16 years.  Join us to share and learn new skills and to enjoy the camaraderie, fun and great lunches.  We look forward to welcoming familiar as well as new faces.

Bring lunch to share and a pair of scissors

For more information or if you want to take part email info@artsalivewales.org.uk 

The unveiling of the annual art project is an eagerly awaited moment in the local calendar whilst the sculptures are a hugely popular feature of the Market Hall, drawing residents and visitors all year round.  In recognition of its iconic status, this year’s project has been generously supported with funding from Abergavenny Town Council

2017 is Abergavenny Food Festival’s 19th year running and reaches 35,000 people  http://www.abergavennyfoodfestival.com
