On Thursday 24th June at 10am we will be running a guided version of Narberth Women’s Heritage Walk.
The walk (approx 6km) follows in the footsteps of 10 remarkable local women from history and shares their stories at key locations in and around the town.
We will meet at the Townsmoor Car Park at 10.00 and spaces are strictly limited. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear and be aware that there are areas of uneven ground and/or unpaved stretches of road along the way.*
Maps and guides will be supplied, but if you would like to walk the trail yourself, it is available to download here.
**Please note: This event is now SOLD OUT**
*We will be repeating a shorter, more accessible route at a future date.
In this celebration of Welsh women’s history and creativity there will be the opportunity to write poetry, share it in an exhibition of vintage china (upcycled by artist Linda Norris) and join together for an afternoon tea:
*On Saturday 31st July (10.30 – 3pm) there will be a poetry writing workshop based on ‘shards’. Bring along some found china, sea glass or a shard of pottery from a broken heirloom and be guided through a series of exercises to inspire your writing.
*At the end of the session, you will choose a line from your writing to appear on some vintage china as we celebrate the mudlarkers, resourceful mothers and housewives whose histories are fragmented or forgotten in time. This work will be created by artist Linda Norris in her studio.
*On Saturday 28th August at 3pm, there will be an afternoon tea for participants to launch an exhibition of the finished work.
*At the end of September, we’ll be in touch and participants will be welcome to collect and treasure their unique artworks as heirlooms of the future!
£50 per person (generously subsidised by the National Lottery Heritage Fund) and spaces are strictly limited. Bring a packed lunch.
