Canu Chwarel - Singing Slate

With support from LleCHI, we are arranging a number of singing/sound workshops in different quarry towns (eg Tal y Sarn, Bethesda and Dinorwig). We hope to give the women of quarrying communities a voice by developing pieces for performance in a quarry. Each bilingual workshop will be run with a different workshop leader, including Sam Frankie Fox and Sian Miriam. Dates/times to be decided… get in touch if you are interested/watch this space!
