Arts & Crafts in Pembrokeshire
Pembrokeshire’s an arty kind of place.
Artists and craftspeople gravitate to this part of South-west Wales, attracted by the seascapes, quality of light and that special Celtic magic that comes with the territory.
Two must visits are the gallery at Oriel y Parc, St Davids and Tenby Museum and Gallery Home to world class artists such as Graham Sutherland who described Pembrokeshire was a ‘land of exultant strangeness’ and other artistic superstars Augustus and Gwen John, Kyffin Williams and John Piper to name just a few.
Crafty hot spots can be found across Pembrokeshire. In fact there are galleries and workshops everywhere in villages and tucked away down country lanes high in Preseli Mountains. Head to Haverfordwest, Narberth, Milford Marina, Newport, St Davids, Saundersfoot, just to name a few if you want to browse several shops. Also look out for the Pembrokeshire Craft Makers exhibitions.
Pembrokeshire has two outstanding woollen mills. Solva Woollen Mill, the oldest mill in Pembrokeshire, craft carpets, runners and rugs that have graced the floors of a research station in Antarctica. Melin Tregwynt is also known world over and is synonymous with sophisticated design and high quality blankets, cushions and throws that can be found in iconic department stores from New York to Tokyo.
