Carers’ beautiful mosaics are on show at exhibition
YOUNG Carers from across Anglesey have recently taken part in an inspirational project, working with artist Rhian Price to create beautiful mosaics based on the Quarter Session collection held by Anglesey Archives.
Organised by the Action For Children charity and thanks to the Changing Cultures Grant from CYMAL, the young carers were given a guided tour around the Goal and Court in Beaumaris and access to the Quarter Sessions collection held by Anglesey Archives.
The Quarter sessions were formerly sessions of a court held four times a year by a justice of the peace to hear criminal charges, as well as civil and criminal appeals in England and Wales.
This experience gave them a greater insight into the individuals named in the documents, and gave inspiration to their art work.
Throughout the experience they were guided along by artist Rhian Price, who said: “The project gave these young carers a chance to join in every step of the way, even cutting the porcelain tiles, tesserae, into small pieces and ensuring they were the right shape.
“The finished pieces are a tribute to the hard work of the young people involved.”
The exhibition of their work, at Oriel Mon, runs until October 5.
