Event description

Description

“I’m passionate about the Severn. Having lived on both sides myself, I got to thinking about how they are often very different. I set myself a task of visiting paired places that lie on opposite banks, then produce drawings of them. I have been researching about the history of the river, listening to people’s stories and penning poems and prose. I’m on a mission – I want to encourage others to visit both sides, as I have!”

To fund her book, she has launched a Crowdfunder online. Trying to share her passion for the river doesn’t quite work in cyberspace, so Carolyn invites you to join her to find out about the project at the Old Ferry Inn, Beachley, on Sunday 29th October at noon. The Old Bridge is both the beginning, and the end, of her circular journey, which moves from one side to the other of the Severn, telling stories along the way.

She has two special-edition prints available of views of both sides of the Old Severn Bridge – one from Beachley, the other from Aust Cliffs. Come along and meet her in the pub and see the original artworks, which were drawn using local charcoal supplied by Resilient Woodlands in Woolaston. That’s important too, as all the art projects Carolyn has been involved in are about places, and the people that make them special. If you have stories to tell about the Severn Bridges yourself, that would be brilliant too.

And, if the weather is good, join her for a stroll around the headland where the Severn meets the Wye, near Chapel Rock. Wear suitable clothing and footwear, it might be slippery.

Visit her website here and you will find further information and a link for booking – and it’s FREE. And you can add your own stories too!
