Fire dancers, raku firing and molten metal displays will be just some of the winter-themed activities open for the public at Carmarthen School of Art’s open evening next month.
Coleg Sir Gâr’s art school, based at Job’s Well Road in Carmarthen, is encouraging people to visit the event where there will be live music, hot food, craft sales, glazing and firing, painting with light, face painting, enamelling, as well as student ambassadors being on hand for campus tours.
Heating up the event will be a specialist iron pour display which will see staff and students from the sculpture team, pouring and casting hot metal into moulds throughout the evening.
Carmarthen School of Art is the only educational institution in the UK to offer students the opportunity of working with three metals which include iron, aluminium and bronze.
The event, which will also offer advice on studying art and design at the art school, is called Noson Calan Gaeaf, takes place at the college’s Job’s Well campus on Wednesday, November 9, from 5pm to 8pm.
All Coleg Sir Gâr’s other campuses (Ammanford, Gelli Aur, Pibwrlwyd and Graig) will also be hosting a standard open evening for the public to learn about educational opportunities and training on the same date, from 5pm to 7.30pm.
