Self-Care and Wellness at Our Core
When our Founder James Roose-Evans first formed the Bleddfa Trust as a charity over 40 years ago, the original remit was to offer a spiritual space for caring and the arts. As time has passed, these themes are still incredibly important. Modernisation and the dawn of the 21st Century has dictated that Bleddfa Centre now identifies more broadly as a place ‘for the Creative Spirit’, nevertheless the themes of self-care and wellbeing are still at the forefront.
Forgiveness is the answer – but what is the question?
Ever since Marian Partington came with her colleague Marina Cantacuzino to deliver the Annual Lecture at Bleddfa Centre, I have been turning the idea of forgiveness over and over in my mind. And I still don’t have a definitive view, still just lots of questions.
From the Earth to the Sky – Our Relationships with Trees
Imagine our lives without trees. Our relationship with these perennial plants is inextricably binding. We have built our homes, fashioned tools and utensils, created paper, furniture, fuel, weapons and musical instruments using the materials that trees provide us with. If you look around you now, you will see lots of former trees that have been cut down and used to make your life more comfortable and refined.
Our First Exhibition of 2019
The first exhibition of the year in the Bleddfa Gallery is a solo show by Lois Hopwood, who has settled locally, raising her family in Knucklas together with her partner, the potter Tony.
