Join artist Chloe Winder for a Walkie Talkie through and around Machynlleth. Meeting at MOMA in the town centre, we'll head for a walk through the town's edge lands, foraging for sources of inspiration as we go. Back at MOMA, Chloe will guide you in using a range of drawing media on paper, encouraging you to use a range of senses to create drawings. This workshop will offer the chance to work collaboratively as well as alone, and to use your memory and senses to hone your observation and drawing skills. This workshop will be suitable for beginners. The walk will be under 2 hours and graded 'easy'. Thanks to The Outdoor Partnership, we can provide outdoor gear (boots raincoats, trousers). Please email orieldaviessuzie.jones@gmail.com with your sizes and needs by Wednesday 14 February to request.

With thanks to MOMA, Machynlleth.

This walk is part of our Walkie Talkie project which celebrates the centenary of Laura Ashley, an important figure in the history of the local area as well as in textile design and production.

As part of the project, Oriel Davies are commissioning 5 artists to lead 5 walks each based in one of the following towns, of which had its own Laura Ashley shop: Carno (or Caersws) where the Laura Ashley factory was located, Welshpool, Newtown, Llanidloes and Machynlleth.

Laura Ashley developed her business with the idea of family at its heart. One such idea she used was the ‘walkie-talkie’ - a walk outside in nature with the family or some of the staff to talk through ideas and problems and support wellbeing.

This project is funded by The Ashley Family Foundation.
