Criw Celf

Criw Celf Wrexham is an Arts Council funded project that is now going into its fourth year, after the great success of the project in 2015/16. Criw Celf is an amazing experience and opportunity for children to work alongside a selection of Professional Artists.

Joining Criw Celf 2017

There is a charge of £35 per student (which can be paid in instalments and includes 6 x master classes, 1 x trip and an art pack). The course also includes the chance to be part of their very own exhibition.

The Masterclasses are held in Wrexham on six Saturdays or Sundays with a view to installing the next Criw Celf exhibition in September 2016.

Dydd Llun Pawb

In April 2018 Oriel Wrecsam will resurrect Dydd Llun Pawb (Everybody's Monday) - an almost forgotten tradition unique to Wrexham.

In the late 1800s, following the Spring market, everyone was given the Monday off in order to descend on the town, which was wildly animated with street entertainment, food stalls, musical acts and surreal side shows. In 1895 it was quite the colourful occasion!

Dydd Llun Pawb will capture the essence of the original 1800's event but reimagined in a celebratory and playful way through a street parade, fair and the launch of six new souvenirs based on six of Wrexham’s strangest and most wonderful stories that we’ll be gathering at events, workshops and through this site over the coming months.

If you’re interested in getting involved, sharing a story or have any thoughts or comments please get in touch with us here, or at dyddllunpawbwxm@gmail.com or drop into Oriel Wrecsam for a chat.
