St. David's day Celebrations

Most of my attention is focused towards a new performance I am making for St. David's day. 'An Evening with Miss Ashill' will involve me presenting a nursery carpet session. At present I work as a teachers assistant in a Welsh Language primary school. Having to teach the three year olds a basic understanding of the language is a huge responsibility (98% of the children come from English speaking only homes). You are invited to witness how it is we coax the children to adopt our Bilingual ways through stories, food and memory games.
Im very nervous and excited about this and hope I have enough Welsh Cakes for everyone!

It is an honour to be showing alongside such talented female artist's. I am very encouraged by how many of us there are in Wales with active and vibrant practices. For the exhibition I have included photographic documentation from the Craig Y Nos performance 'Open Door', Jul 2010, alongside two drawings ('Estyniad' and 'Home Sweet Home') which originated from this live work. During the Open Door performance I invited visitors to come to my room at the castle, watch me make site responsive drawings, have a cup of tea and listen to stories of the castle's legendary owner: Madam Adelina Patti.
Copies of the catalogue from the Craig Y Nos exhibition will be available for free at this show.
Hope to see you there.


The purpose for this blog is to keep you all updated on any new performances, events or exhibitions I am involved with. Please use this as a reference point for information on developments within my practice. As I am currently in the laborious process of creating a website (I’m only trying to create something simple, but generally struggling!) I feel that this will be a useful substitute for now.
