2017 is Wales’s ‘Year of Legends’. It’s a theme that fits the Isle of Anglesey like a glove – and in more ways than you might have thought.
The AAAC biennial exhibition presents a diverse range of contemporary two and three dimensional artworks by members of the various art groups on Anglesey.
Anglesey has a distinguished coastal and maritime history.
A new exhibition, by the artist and maker Rhodri Owen who contrasts his own hand-crafted furniture with transfigured pieces in visually unexpected ways.
Starting from the image known as 'Poor Taff', which shows a poverty-stricken gentleman riding to London on a goat, this exhibition will explore how the Welsh people were portrayed in the popular press in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
Beaumaris was the last of Edward I's 'iron ring' of castles along the North Wales coast.
Llynnon Mill, built in 1775, is the only working windmill in Wales producing stoneground wholemeal flour using organic wheat.
This community based museum tells the story of crossing the Menai Strait and celebrates the iconic, historic bridges and the famous engineers who built them.
Now carefully restored by Cyfeillion Swtan (Friends of Swtan) it is far more than a small folk museum. It represents a peasant way of life on Anglesey, only a hundred years ago.
Supporters and friends of the Swtan project, helped by European funding, have ensured that in turning back the clock to 1910, with furniture, fabrics, pots, pans and pictures, attention to detail has been a priority. So that when you arrive and enter, you can only imagine how a small family could survive without water, toilets, bedrooms and living on the sparse pickings of a few animals, small field and a herb garden. They made, repaired, washed, cooked, and reared animals - by hand.
When first confronted by the restorers, the cottage roof had collapsed, since the main beam, an old sailing mast, had rotted away. The challenge quickly captured the imagination and energy of the locals, and the restoration was achieved.
Outside you will find some of the old farm and fishing implements - the bare necessities of a simple life dependent on no more than nature provided.
