Exhibition of Felt Works by Ali Scott

AliScott-Poster-01-WEB
Standard

We are very happy to be host to the wondrous felt creations of renowned local felt maker Ali Scott throughout November & December.

Ali creates local landscape & wildlife portraits in the medium of felt. She achieves remarkably evocative depictions of her subjects, each one you’ll want to cuddle. If you are not familiar with her work we implore you to come and enjoy it, if you know her works I’m sure you’ll be craving for more.

Ali’s colourful, vibrant felt ‘paintings’ are a personal response to the wild and beautiful places that abound here in Wales. The seasonal shifts, changing light, colours and textures of the landscape inform her work.

The ancient art of felt-making is Ali’s abiding passion. She enjoys the unpredictability of working with fleece and fibre and feels this helps to keep the work dynamic.

It can take many hours to ‘lay out’ a design, building up fine layers of wool, as if it painted. Animal and plant fibres, spun wool and fabric are often added to give definition and enhance the surface texture.

When Ali is happy with a piece, the wet felting process begins. All her work is wet felted by hand. A little soap and warm water are added, a pressure is applied by rubbing and rolling and the transformation begins. As the fibres mat together, the resulting fabric is worked vigorously to strengthen and shrink it.

Each felt is unique and cannot be replicated, however, if desired, a similar piece can be made and commissions are always welcomed.

Ali exhibits widely and has work in several private collections in the UK and abroad. She is also an experienced felt-making tutor.

Ali is a member of The International Feltmakers Association, Ceredigion Art Trail, Celf Canolbarth Cymru and Origin Carmarthen.

She is also an experienced felt-making tutor.

Ali can be contacted through her website: www.aliscottfeltartist.co.uk

All work is available for purchase, along with a fine selection of greeting cards – but don’t wait too long as these pieces will be snapped up.

The exhibition will be available until 5th January 2018.

Live Music – Brenig 11/11/17

BackroomBand-24-2-17
Standard

We are kicking off our season of evening gigs and dinners in the Cafe @ Mulberry Bush Wholefoods once again, and opening with a fabulous Vegetarian Harvest Dinner. To inaugurate this occasion we will have, for the 1st time, the wonderful ‘Brenig’, a folk due of Daniel Laws on guitar and Mandy Martin on Mandolin.

DANIEL LAWS started composing songs in 2010. He lives on a smallholding just outside Aberystwyth and draws upon his observations and experiences from farming and walking in the countryside to compose songs that tell stories, some funny some sad, some inspiring.  Wonderfully heartfelt descriptive lyrics and beautifully haunting melodies like “As You Do” and not forgetting the rousing and funny songs “Go Go Jemima”

MANDY MARTIN is originally from Staffordshire and settled in Borth nr Aberystwyth with her family in the eighties. Her roots are in folk music having grown up and performed in the late 60’s & 70’s midlands folk scene where her parents ran a successful folk club for many years. Her lovely pure voice and guitar playing is often compared to Julie Felix. Mandy also plays Mandolin and the Banjo..

There will be a 3 course vegetarian banquet for £19.95.
