CAVC Art students create Christmas Gifts for Penarth art fair

Level 3 Art & Design students from Cardiff and Vale College have created a number of funky Christmas gifts and decorations for sale at a contemporary Christmas craft market on Penarth Pier.

The Gift craft fair will be held in the Penarth Pier Pavilion’s Exhibition Gallery on Saturday 6th December and Sunday 7th December from 12 noon until 5pm. Entry will be free.

“Gift is a contemporary Christmas market of 20 stalls, selling quality handmade items,” CAVC Art Lecturer Kat Keeble-Buckle said. “A huge range of interesting and unusual gifts will be on sale.”

The students have created a number of Christmas gifts. These range from snow globes, ceramic and porcelain tree decorations, magnets, badges and Christmas wreaths. They will also be created Heart Pillows for the comfort of breast cancer patients who have recently had mastectomies.

All money raised at the 'Gift' stall will go to Llandough Hospital Breast Care Unit and to 'Stepping Stone' at Velindre Hospital.
