Pebble painting workshops held in Denbighshire

More than 100 people have taken part in a series of pebble painting workshops.

The Council’s Countryside Service, via the Welsh Government ENRaW project, artist Tim Pugh, with assistance from James Davies MP and members of the community, held three days of pebble painting workshops at Coed Y Morfa and Parc Pendre Prestatyn, and Brickfield Pond, Rhyl.

These were a continuation of the efforts of the community on the Prestatyn/Dyserth Way snake and Brickfield Pond snake.

Some pebbles were brought from the original snakes and included in the art works, and many more were made on the day by the avid artists. 

Councillor Tony Thomas, the Council’s Lead Member for Housing and Communities, said: “These sessions provided a fantastic opportunity for families to take part in a fun and engaging activity.

“Families were able to enjoy a safe outdoor environment and have fun painting rocks in the sun and with the help of Tim Pugh, creating beautiful snake like art works. All sessions were full, and all families were appreciative of the summer holiday activity.

“These pebble snakes have helped bring the community together as well as show support for the NHS and key workers. As a Council we are proud to have been able to host these sessions to support the great work being undertaken in the community.”

The pebbles at the Prestatyn are still in place while pebbles at Brickfield Pond will be installed in the car park at Morrisons’ Rhyl branch.
