Criw Celf

Criw Celf is a project for young people aged between 12 and 18 from North Powys who have been identified as being able and talented in the visual arts.  It is part of a national initiative to nurture young talent in Wales. The participants come together around seven times a year to work with professional artists, to visit exhibitions and an university fine art department.

Making our Mark | 14 January - 25 February 2017

The Making our Mark exhibition and video were both outcomes of a day-long collaborative workshop that took place in December 2016 at Oriel Davies.  Criw Celf participants were placed into three random groups and were set a two-part challenge - the first part was to devise and create their own 'art tools' - for this they were provided with a range of 'low-tech' resources such as cardboard, nails, fabric, paint roller handles, wire, string, glue guns, tape and more.  The second part was to work together to develop mark-making methods and designs or drawings with their art tools.  They were provided with plain wallpaper and flooring lino on which to work - the resulting artworks were to be exhibited as 'Making our Mark' in Oriel Davies in January-February 2017.  During August 2017 'Making our Mark' was also exhibited at Rawffest - the Youth Arts Festival, at Venue Cymru in Llandudno. This was a great opportunity for us to celebrate the success and creativity of Criw Celf Oriel Davies at a national level.

The aim of the collaborative workshop is to encourage collaboration, inventiveness, risk-taking and creativity, with other desirable outcomes being that working collaboratively will lead to making friends, an increase in confidence and unexpected creative results.
