We Are Celf-Able

Who are Celf- Able?

Celf-Able are disabled and artist led, but open to all ages and abilities, artists and people who just want to have a go at art.

We are holding group art sessions once a month in five locations across North Powys - Newtown, Welshpool, , Llanfair Caereinion, Machynlleth and Llanidloes (yet tbc).  All materials and tea, coffee and biscuits are provided. We charge £5 for non-members and £3 for members.  Annual membership fee £15, annual Zoom attendance fee £15.

We are a diverse group of artists from a wide range of  disabled and non-disabled backgrounds.  Some have been to formal art education, some are self-taught, some have many years' experience of doing art, others are new to art.  Our art interests are many and varied, from painting, performance, sculpting, photography, drawing, printing, to advising on access for artists and many other activities related to raising the visibility of disability through the arts.  We share our skills, learning from each other and learning together.  Much of the time we make it up as we go along!
