Potager Exhibition

Potager Exhibition

Saturday 15th June

Every Saturday and Sunday until 14th July

Bleddfa Centre has an underlying theme of the Ritualisation of Time over 2019, and nowhere are the passages of the seasons more marked than in the garden. We have also had a strand running throughout our programming of the importance of soil, soul, and society, as introduced by Satish Kumar in our Annual Lecture of 2017.

There has long been a debate about whether gardening is actually an expression of art – but everybody makes sculpture and pictures with shapes and colour in their garden.  And drawing and painting are a way of seeing... 

This exhibition will feature a range of local artists and craftspeople, plus the involvement of Rhos Organic Market Garden, and Hortus, the locally-produced international gardening journal.  There will be plants and pictures, baskets and books, pots and sculptures, all with a theme of beauty, practicality and sustainability.  

There will also be talks and demonstrations linked to the exhibition:

Saturday 15th June - Watercolour painting demo by Ruth Kirkby 2 - 4pm.

Saturday 22nd June - Pottery demonstration by Tony Hall 2 - 4pm.

Saturday 29th - Full day Monoprint workshop with Catherine Wynne-Paton.

The gallery will be open every Saturday and Sunday 11am - 5pm.

Free entrance. As always, the Reading Room Café will also be open, serving drinks and homemade food with a warm welcome for all.
