Take A Hike

23 Nov

There’s so much going on in Swansea this weekend and I’m going to give it all a plug because there’s a lot of people living in Swansea who are professional complainers and bang on about nothing happening, which isn’t true, so why not get into town tomorrow (Sunday) and take a hike around the city calling in on the fabulous things happening, all of them free.

Art and artists’ cards at Swansea Print Workshop

First off, start with the hidden gem that is Swansea Print Workshop which is having Open Days from 10.30 – 4.00 each day until Wednesday November 27th, with original art, artists’ cards, and amazing antique and modern machines dating from Queen Victoria’s era.

Then stroll down West Way onto the seafront (about 2 minutes walk) to the National Waterfront Museum which is hosting the Green Fayre – I went today and bought some fab vintage tools and a really nice vintage glass brooch from Tools For Self Reliance Cymru who lovingly refurbish old tools.

Jeweller’s pliers, a burnisher, a scraper (for mezzotint) and a glass brooch all for Β£7.50

Then round the corner to Swansea MuseumΒ , a proper old Cabinet of Curiosities sort of place which is now displaying drawings and screenprints from Swansea Print Workshop with its collection of antique taxidermy.

And then if you want more, round the other corner is the Mission Gallery that has just launched its Winter Garden show and if you’re hungry for more – try out the Glynn Vivian art gallery that’s showing the official Swansea City 50 years exhibition and has a fab cafe too. Oh and they’re taking entries for the Swansea Open as well.

PHEW!!!!! If you’ve got a car you can also catch the last day of Deanne Mangold’s Open Studio at Class Glass in Llansamlet.

There, that should fill up anyone’s Sunday ……

    You had me at mince pies. But alas it’s a tad too far for a Sunday hike from Oz.
