Summer 'Out and About' - Wicker Architects with Oriel Myrddin Gallery

Summer 2018 out and about

Wicker architects

Come and join us and become a wicker architect for the day! Complementing our exhibition Haptic Tacit – in search of the vernacular we will echo early architectural forms, shapes and techniques using lath and wattle to make play houses from willow and found materials. A fantastic day out for all the family learning skills which you can then apply in your own gardens.

The wicker houses will remain in situ to be played in by visiting children.

Not suitable for unaccompanied children under 12.
