Oriel Seren is a not-for-profit Art and Craft Gallery exhibiting and selling work by professional artists and craftspeople. There is an emphasis on local artists and craftspeople but Oriel Seren also displays work by people from further afield including from other rural areas.

Oriel Seren is situated in a prime location on the main shopping street in the market town of Machynlleth, Powys, within the Dyfi Valley Biosphere area. The Gallery offers customers the chance to view and buy unique, handmade pieces of art and craftwork. Oriel Seren provides artists with a cost-effective, professional exhibition space and retail outlet.

The Artists’ page on this website gives details of the Featured and Taster artists who are displaying work in Oriel Seren throughout the year.  Each month we will have a different Guest Artist (see Current Guest Artist page). For information on past exhibitors please view the Previous Guest Artists page.

Current Guest Artist

Our March 2019 Guests are Samantha Boulanger and Elaine Turnbull. 

Samantha Boulanger trades as Kaotic Kittus:

Samantha is a self-taught seamstress. Also known as ‘The Accidental Upcyclist’. A forager and rescuer of all things fabric, trying to save unwanted clothing and textiles from ending up in landfill. Creatively revamping and recreating them into unique, funky upcycled eco finery, giving them a new lease of life. In 2009, Samantha created the upcycled clothing labels ‘Kaotic Kittus’ and ‘Guto the Whippet’.



Elaine Turnbull trades as Pickled Tinc:

Pickled Tinc ~ Jewellery adventures in Upcycling ~ made by Elaine Turnbull

Pickled Tinc is a collection of Jewellery made from reclaimed and upcycled materials. Off cuts of electrical wire, removed copper water pipes and other found bits and pieces. Some beads from charity shop finds and bits of a fly tipped caravan.

Elaine has always been drawn to making pretty things out of other peoples rejects and off cuts spending years making expensive looking items for the stage on very tight budgets and delighting in finding the beauty in discarded metal.

All items are hand made using hand tools in a solar powered workshop in Mid Wales.

Don’t waste it, wear it!  


Oriel Seren has been created by local artists who share a passion for quality hand-made arts and crafts.  We want to provide an opportunity for locals and visitors to experience excellence in art and craft.

We also offer Guest Artist exhibitions at the gallery.

Do visit us to see all the beautiful work we have on show.
