Gwanwyn is a month-long national festival held across Wales in May each year celebrating creativity in older age. The festival began in 2006 and is supported by Arts Council of Wales and Welsh Government.
At 3pm the ‘Killing Time‘ concert will be performed on the Glanfa stage. A concert for piano, simulated guzheng and 5 knitters on prepared knitting needles. More info here http://gwanwyn.org.uk/events/knitted-music-2/

Earlier in the morning, at 11:30, I’ll be giving a knitting music workshop in the Wales Millennium Center, where I’ll be talking about developing my composition with prepared knitting needles. Followed by a music session: there are spaces for 8-10 knitters of all ability to experience ‘knitting music’. Together we’ll be knitting the Strumble Head soundscape in Pembrokeshire.

All events are free to attend.
