AT HOME IN WALES MURAL PROJECT

Help us create a mural about what it’s like to live in Wales by taking part in our FREE “At Home in Wales” art workshops in Tacoma Square at Mermaid Quay on Saturday 25 May to Tuesday 28 May (12noon – 5pm each day).

What do you love about living in Wales?  What makes you proud of the place you call home? We’d love you to show us through your drawings, painting, collage, words and more.

The art you produce will be used to create murals to be displayed around Mermaid Quay and at the Mount Stuart Primary School.

The art workshops will be run by Cardiff-based artist Lisa-Marie Tann.

Whether you are young or old, have 5 minutes or want to stay for the afternoon, we want to to show us how you feel about being at home in Wales. Join us in the art marquee in Tacoma Square.
