Create original photographic works with artist Mohamed Hassan in the historic grounds of Powis Castle. Through this walk and workshop, you’ll gain contextual and practical knowledge of how to create mood and drama in your photos, using the castle’s evocative landscaped gardens, rough meadows and woodland. In small groups, you’ll be guided in portrait photography, taking turns to be the photographer and sitter in the castle grounds. This workshop will be suitable for beginners though an interest in photography techniques is encouraged. The grounds 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 7 February to request.

With thanks for Powis Castle and the National Trust.

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.
