We’re delighted to introduce a new one day workshop based on the stunning coast of Snowdonia in Wales.
We will spend the day in Portmeirion, a village created by the architect Clough Williams-Ellis from 1925 to 1976. He wanted to show how a naturally beautiful site could be developed without spoiling it, and hoped the village would make people think about buildings in the landscape. Clough Williams-Ellis had wished for a tightly grouped coastal village on some romantic clifftop site, perhaps on an island or a remote estuary. This idea stayed with him for about twenty years until 1925 when he found the Aber Iâ estate on the Dwyryd estuary near his home. The first thing he did was change the name to Portmeirion. Surrounding the beautiful village are 70 acres of exotic woodlands with miles of woodland and coastal walks, ideal for landscape photographers.
Peter Hendrie will be leading this one day workshop, a new location for 2016. His enthusiasm and love of landscape photography is infectious and will make for a great one day workshop.
