The Presteigne farm as the backdrop for a craft weekend
Presteigne’s rich and varied art scene will be revealed again later this month with the return of the Presteigne Open Studios project from August 27-29.
There will be new faces among the artists and makers who will open their doors to visitors, and they will showcase everything from multimedia to 2D art, embroidery, photography, ceramics, blacksmithing, jewelry, printmaking, furniture making, wood engraving, sculpture, painting and drawing.
Take a leisurely stroll through this pretty little historic town and discover hidden gems and nooks, then venture to Rodd’s Farm (home of the Sir Sidney Nolan Trust) where the artist-in-residence will join the array of talents and skills exposed. . A map of the city’s art trails is available throughout Presteigne, open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
