Last chance to see Hockney exhibition
If you haven’t popped down to the Welsh Millennium Centre lately, this week is your last chance to see David Hockney’s Six Tales from the Brother Grimm. Last month our very own Tim MacFarlan gave his verdict on the show, which features 33 prints reproduced from etching done by Hockney at the end of the 1960’s. The exhibition runs until Friday.
Cardiff Bites tests local produce
We’re slightly jealous of Cardiff blogger Nicki who received some lovely homemade goodies through the post recently. On Monday Nicki enjoyed a flapjack from Llwynhelyg Farm Shop for free, after winning a Twitter competition. She said it was “chewy, buttery and perfect with a cup of tea.” But Nicki’s day didn’t end there. Later she tested Seville orange marmalade and chilli jam from Lesley’s Kitchen. Wales has some fantastic local produce and this sounds especially scrumptious!
Cardiff crafters join forces through social media
Talented jewellery designer Bea Roberts, from Penarth, has created a Facebook group to unite crafters across Cardiff. Crafting is a popular pastime in South Wales and so far the group has 79 members. This group is a brilliant way to meet people with the same hobby and interests, as well as to share crafting tips. We’re sure Bea, who is the creator of Tidal Dreams Collections, would welcome your support.
Cardiff Vintage & Handmade Spring Fair Pontcanna
This Saturday there’ll be over 40 stall holders at Fields Park Road, Pontcana, selling crafty items in aid of Pedal Power. This charity aims to make cycling accessible to all, so give it some support by popping down in between 10am- 4pm. This promises to be a fun family event for everyone, with children’s entertainers and facepainters. If the weather’s as nice as last weekend we’re sure you’ll all enjoy being outdoors. Entry is free.
