Hello and welcome to Cardiff Open. Our Summer 2015 programme is now available here so take a look at what we’ve got coming up that includes some weekend and short courses including our new Principles of Drawing and Design & Make: Clay Collective workshops.

We’re delighted that FabLab Manager Martijn Gommeren is now running introductory workshops on 3D Printing, laser cutting, vinyl cutting and CNC milling. These provide a great way of finding out more about new technology and getting an insight into what you might be able to do with it whether as someone experimenting with product design or to incorporate into your art practice.

It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced artist or designer, are preparing a portfolio to apply for a degree or Foundation programme or if you’ve never picked up a pencil before, we’ve got something to offer you so the courses and workshops are a great way of trying out new skills or for further developing your practice.

Cardiff Metropolitan University Choral Group

We’re seeking expressions of interest from all of you with a passion for singing.

We’re planning to launch a choral group, as part of the Cardiff Open programme, that will be open to the public and to the University’s staff and students. The group’s initial programme will be a mixed repertoire, aimed at those who enjoy their singing.

The first performances will be at the University’s Llandaff and Cyncoed Campuses. The ability to sight read music would be helpful but it isn’t essential.

Please let me know if you’d like further information on the choral group – we’re very much looking forward to the first rehearsals that will soon be announced.
