Creative Cloisters | Monday 14 August | 10am - 2.30pm | £15

The beautiful Cloisters of Hereford Cathedral have been a source of creative inspiration to musicians, artists and poets for centuries. Today the Cloisters are home to the offices and the staff of the cathedral and are still a place of beauty, peace and tranquillity which inspire visitors. This summer the cathedral will be opening the Cloisters to artists to experience the space and create work in response to this very special location.

Following a welcome in the Old Chapel and an opportunity to learn more about the history of the Cloisters by watching the immersive and engaging historical reimagining video, attendees will have full access to the Cloisters, College Hall and Canon’s Garden which leads down to the River Wye. Artists can choose to set up location in one area for the day, or move around the spaces, and be inspired by the comings and goings and stunning views. A sandwich lunch and tea and coffee will be provided before an opportunity to come together at the end of the day to share and discuss work created.

Materials will not be provided by the cathedral. Artists are asked to bring along any materials they need for the day.
