Alongside her residency at the Reading Room in Manorbier Abigail Sidebotham has delivered a five week education project with Manorbier Primary School exploring the Pembrokeshire coastline and the impact of the Sea Empress Disaster on the natural environment.
The children visited the ‘Fieldwork’ exhibition by artist Dail Behennah at Oriel Myrddin Gallery in Carmarthen and looked at how the artist used walking and collecting natural objects in her work. Then they worked with Abigail Sidebotham to explore their local environment through drawing and mark making and the interaction of oil and water through marbling to create their own books.
This project was supported by Oriel Myrddin Gallery with thanks to Manorbier Primary School. The ‘Sea Empress’ Project is supported by Heritage Lottery Fund and Beatrice Plunkett.
