Printmaking workshops with Aberystwyth artist Marian Haf are taking place over the summer to create artwork for Bronglais Hospital’s new Cancer Day Unit.

The free workshops will be held at the Aberystwyth bandstand and are open to former and current patients of the unit, NHS staff, carers, or anyone with a connection to the unit.

Booking is essential and places are limited to one workshop per person on Sunday 2 June, Sunday 16 June or Sunday 21 July.

Kathryn Lambert, Arts in Health Coordinator for Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Marian for running what will be a lovely experience for all who wish to contribute to the patient environment of the new unit.

“We’ve chosen to hold the workshops on the sea front to draw on the coastal location as inspiration for the artwork.

“We will use objects found on the beach to make sun prints called cyanotype, a form of printmaking using photosensitive solution which turns blue under exposure to sunlight.

“No previous experience is required, only a passion to contribute to the patient environment of the new unit through artwork.”
