Art and Landscape Walks - Tour 2

Penmon

We continue with previous year’s free walking tours.  These have proved very popular by combining visits to artist’s studios with en-route insights into the landscape and history, which inspire many of our artists.

A studio walk with Guide Kath Thomas.  A circular walk visiting the headland at Penmon at times meeting the Anglesey Coastal Path while visiting the open studios of a number of artists in and around Caim and Penmon, before returning to the Penmon Priory.  Meeting and Parking at Penmon Priory (this is a paid car park).

Please come prepared for all weathers and wear walking boots, and as we will have a lunch-stop bring food and drink as there are no shops or cafes on the route.

If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please make them known to Kath before the walk sets off.

Art and Landscape Walks - Tour 4

Cemaes

We continue with previous year’s free walking tours. These have proved very popular by combining visits to artist’s studios with en-route insights into the landscape and history, which inspire many of our artists.

With artist Christine Garwood and Caroline Bateson (walking group leader and wildlife guide) this sketching walk will start in the Cemaes Car Park (2, Victoria Road, Cemaes, LL67 0HR) and follow a Town, harbour and coastal route.

The walk is not strenuous, but suitable clothing/footwear for the day’s weather is advised. Bring basic drawing equipment, a small sketchbook and a packed lunch. There are car parking, refreshments to purchase and toilet facilities.  Caroline says “we should see a mix birds such as the rare chough on the cliffs and coastal grassland, stonechat, fulmar, tern and auk species out at sea. We may also spot seals, porpoise and dolphin. Early wildflowers such as spring squill will be seen on the cliff tops.”
