Llwyn Celyn Open Day


Saturday 1st June - Tuesday 4th June | 10am - 4pm


Llwyn Celyn, Monmouthshire

Llwyn Celyn is a Grade 1 listed medieval building. Once part of the Llanthony Priory estate it was built in the late 15th century. Llwyn Celyn sits on a hillside at the mouth of the Llanthony Valley, a few mile from the ruins of the priory. The valley has for centuries attracted poets, artist and romantics and witnessed the struggles between English and Welsh rule. Our project has not just saved the site, but also tells its history - the story of the people who inhabited it during times of political upheaval and agricultural change.

There will be different activities on Saturday and Sunday including a puppetry workshop with designer/maker Bettina Reeves starting at 10am, mindful walking starting at 11am both days with artist Lisa Hellier and a chance to meet our new artists in residence Ackroyd and Harvey. 

5 Ways Walking - a creative approach to mindful walking led by artist Lisa Hellier.
1st - 2nd June from 11am – 3pm

Stop what you are doing.
Come down from the attic
Grab a bucket or a basket and head for the light

 Join us at Llwyn Celyn for a creative and mindful walk with artist Lisa Hellier. You will explore the local area using mindfulness techniques to reconnect with the landscape. On returning to Llwyn Celyn, we will share gathered thoughts, objects and impressions to create collective artwork and personal haikus.
