Arts At Home

#celfcartref #artsathome #usefulart #celfdefnyddiol #arteutil

As our galleries are temporarily closed, we will be delivering an alternative programme for the time being – ‘Tŷ Pawb Arts at Home’. 

We will be making aspects of our exhibition programme available online, and working with artists to create projects for you to take part in at home. We want to help our audiences feel connected to us and to one another, in artful ways.

We are looking forward to showcasing your creative outputs as part of an open exhibition at Tŷ Pawb, later this year.

Creative Assignments

Sophie Lindsey: Really Wild Lockdown

Sophie invites you to submit short video clips that record your own, or other members of your household’s, behaviour during lockdown, with narration, to create a collective nature documentary which will be exhibited at Tŷ Pawb’s reopening exhibition. Instructions and basic tutorials are available to demonstrate different strategies and camera techniques.

Rhi Moxon: Positivity Press

Participants will be shown how to make DIY publications using practical print and book design techniques.
The publications will capture positive stories and ideas from communities to spread positivity and hope and to encourage interconnectedness during These Strange Times.
We’ll be posting instructional videos with all the info you need to take part very soon!

Jenny Cashmore: Walk with Household Objects

Jenny invites you to liberate a household object from the confines of your home, and to take it with you on a walk. Become part of a playful collaborative art work, where we look to liberate as many household objects as possible between the dates of 25th May and 8th June 2020. At a time when we are all spending more time at home, think about your household objects that never get to leave the house. Help them out! Who needs a dog to take for a walk?  All documentation sent in from participants will be compiled into a collective response that will be shown as part of a group Arts at Home exhibition at Tŷ Pawb.

Owain Train McGilvary: Loving Deeply

During extraordinary times that we are living through now Owain Train McGilvary believes there are pertinent questions about how we live and behave in the world and how much we value communication on all levels. Particularly thinking about how we differ generationally, between the old and young, but also discovering how actually we can relate to each other through political agencies. 

The assignment is simple: Create a collage that expresses your deepest love right now.

Ruth Stringer: The Global Village

Ruth invites you to add your own home to the global village, a unique space that exists to celebrate ourselves and our local community, and to share what we want to take forward into the world beyond lockdown.

There will be templates for you to download (or you can make your own!) and use to make a creative version of your dwelling, adorned with items unique to you and your local area. You will be able to upload your dwelling and have the opportunity to tour the community as it grows online!


Peter Hooper: Creative Folktales

Peter Hooper is encouraging you to write and illustrate new folk stories with a Wrexham-inspired theme. Participants (individually or as a family) will use their garden, immediate locality, or an image of a favourite location or landscape as their inspiration.


Mai Thomas: Soapbox

Relating directly to our present global emergency, social isolation and the measures we all take to protect ourselves and our communities, Mai Thomas’ Creative Assignment focuses on a simple and accessible object which everyone can relate to (now, more than ever!). Soap!

In the absence of our monthly Live @ The Square live music programme, we’ll continue to provide live music experiences directly to your home via our Facebook page, while adhering to Government guidelines surrounding self-isolation and social distancing.
