A creative writing workshop based on the work of Charles Byrd (1916-2018) whose paintings depict Cardiff in the 1950s, capturing the city at an important time in history; emerging from the second world war, energised by new technologies, materials, music, culture and leisure. His paintings tell a story of Cardiff, full of colour and vibrant with life.
Come along and view these fascinating paintings of a much-changed and disappearing cityscape, share stories, explore the history of Cardiff and write a short story prompted by one of the paintings.
Stories may be published on the Artist Trails website and included in the Charles Byrd Story Trail.
The workshop will be led by two local artists…
