‘Art @ the Hafod: the Spirit of Place’ took place at the historic Hafod-Morfa Copperworks, which was one of the primary centres of industry in South Wales and integral to community life in the Lower Swansea Valley. Participants of all ages had a unique chance to respond to this site of rich heritage through observational drawings and painting as part of the event. Over the course of the day each visitor created some investigative drawings from points of interest. At various times, the group explored the findings, discussed the drawings and what might make a final piece. With guidance from artist, Dan Llywelyn Hall, members of the group had the opportunity to develop their observational skills and gain confidence with drawing and painting.
