Thank you Menai Holiday Cottages!

Those that know me know that I absolutely love Anglesey, my Grandparents lived there and my Mother is now an Artist in residence in the little village of Llangoed by the sea.


A while ago I wrote about a Visit to Nain’s House on my Blog, this was read by a lovely lady called Sarah Lloyd, who works for Menai Holiday Cottages. We stayed in one of their beautiful houses one year, it was absolutely perfect, I couldn’t fault it!

Sarah contacted me to ask if we could have a chat about ways in which we could work together, given my love for the area. I asked if it might be possible to hold a Sketchbook Club for them, so this is what we are doing, hooray! On May 31st at the beautiful Out Buildings, we are holding an exclusive workshop for the residences of all the holiday cottages throughout North Wales.

Not only will everybody (40-50 people!) be creating a beautiful spread in their sketchbooks of Menai Bridge, but they will also take away with them a full and detailed ‘brief’ instructing them how to complete their sketchbooks. Full of suggestions of where to sit and paint around the island and fun ideas that don’t involve any drawing at all!

Sarah has written a beautiful Blog Post and has contacted all the locals and residences about the workshop as it is first come first served…

I hope to see you there if you’re lucky enough to be staying in one of their properties and can’t wait to get you all sketching!
