Calling all you Cake Slicers, Card Carvers and Clay Cutters. Mytholmroyd Arts Festival is coming on the 18th – 20 October! Do Do you want to sharpen- up your skills at a workshop? Open your studio to the public? Or just come along for some sheer enjoyment? There’ll be more info on this website in the next few weeks.
The folks at MAF HQ have made some new friends. Mytton Arts Trust is a fantastic new facility for people who want to have a go at printmaking. The Mytton Arts Trust has a beautiful new studio in Mytholmroyd where they offer training and some brilliant facilities. More info here. MAF and Mytton are hatching some plans on how we can collaborate in the 2019 festival.
Mytholmroyd Arts collaborated with the University of Manchester this year to look at what makes the Calder Valley Age Friendly. Thirteen people over 60 took part in a photography project which gave them an opportunity to capture images of what they though about living in the valley as an older person. We will be producing an illustrated report of the findings of the project. If you would like a copy, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of the photographs have also been shown in exhibitions in Mytholmroyd, Hebden Bridge and Heptonstall and will be exhibited in Manchester on 19th December at a seminar about the project. If you would like to attend the seminar, book a place using this link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/age-friendly-rural-areas-tickets-49887716503
Here are a few of the photos taken by participants.
