Art & Craft Holidays at Tregib
Aquire a new painting or craft skill, or brush up on already mastered techniques with friendly, experienced tutors, in a picturesque and inspiring setting in a peaceful corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park, near Llandeilo in beautiful West Wales.
Art at Tregib is based at Ty Cefn Tregib (which means "the house behind Tregib") which was originally the home farm of the former Tregib Mansion. Surrounded by extensive gardens, woodland and grounds which our guests are always welcome to explore, and views across old parkland and the Towy valley to the pretty little market town of Llandeilo on the hill opposite, Ty Cefn Tregib has the perfect location for inspiration and tranquil contemplation.
Due to the Covid-D pandemic we have cancelled all our 2020 courses. We will be re scheduling them to run in Spring/Summer 2021.

We welcome expressions of interest in these courses for 2021, but will not require any payments until we can be sure that we are able to run them.
