AN internationally-acclaimed sculptor will be taking part in a community mental health project in Newcastle Emlyn.

Rebecca Buck, who currently has work on exhibition in New York, will be undertaking a “Join In Sculpture” event being staged by HUTS workshop on Saturday, September 7 from 11am-3pm and to which anyone can go along and participate.

Rebecca will be on hand all day to offer advice and discuss her work.

She will be working in conjunction with the Ni i gyd/All of Us project which is a recently developed Saturday walk-in service for the adult community to gather and share experiences, ideas, information and skills.

It meets every Saturday in the HUTS building in Newcastle Emlyn and is focused on providing the opportunity for people who may not wish to approach HUTS with a formal referral from their GP or other health professional to attend a walk -in session.

Rebecca will be encouraging visitors to join in and suggest activities, courses or events that they would like to do in the future at the Ni i Gyd/All of Us Saturday sessions.

She has completed many community projects throughout her career including works with the mining communities of South Wales such as the Ocean Colliery Pit Marker and Parc Calon Lan.

Refreshments will be available on the day and the sculpture will be built beneath a marquee outside the HUTS building at Teifi Terrace, Adpar, to protect it and the sculptors from the elements.

Anyone who visits can join in by adding something to the sculpture which will evolve throughout the day.

A photographic record will be made of the developing sculpture so everyone is invited to come along and have some fun.
