Bird Feathers: Opulence and Elegance

3rd April - 27th May 2012

Residents at Penpergwm House and pupils from Llanfair Kilgeddin and Llanover Primary School worked with professional artist Vicky Wilson to produce artefacts inspired by artefacts from the National Museum of Wales.  This exhibition is now at Abergavenny Museum where items from our collections have been added.  Hats, stoles, cloaks and fans made of feathers have been incorporated within the display.

Throughout the life of the exhibition we will be holding intergenerational workshops where local school children and members of the public will make their own fans which will be added to the displays.

These workshops will take place on 1st May and 4th May.  Please contact rachaelrogers@monmouthshire.gov.uk or 01873 854282 to book your free place.
