Members visited the Natural Building Centre, Plas Tirion, Betws Rd., Llanrwst.
The owners Ned and Sophie Sharer are conservators of historic buildings, carrying out repairs and sustainable construction work. They run courses ranging from lime plastering to fresco painting. Ned has worked in Westminster Abbey and the British Museum. Sophie is an artist and potter and we visited her studio gallery. Their barns & the garden at Plas Tirion are undergoing renovation and it all made for an excellent visit.
Lunch at Ffin y Parc, gallery almost next door to Plas Tirion . Exhibition of Colin See-Paynton (engraver and print maker) and Carl Chapple rounded off a good day.
