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 February 2019 Guest artist is Claire Fowler who trades under the name of Jones and Ginger.  She is exhibiting a selection of  her re-purposed bags (Gladstone, shopping, handbag,) plus laptop covers, tech bags and wash bags and more.

Jones and Ginger was born out a change in direction summer 2018. I have sewn for decades but now have more time to play in the sewing room and be creative. I am drawn to designing and creating individual items from wonderful fabrics that are being re-imagined, re-purposed, recycled and re-loved. I enjoy taking time for the details…. the reclaimed pockets, the lining fabrics, the two sided straps and the smaller idiosyncratic elements that make up my bags. I am now a regular at charity shops where I source most of my fabrics ably helped by my Mum who has taken up the challenge of rummaging for fabulous fabric finds.

Equally I love the Welsh fabrics, be they the new patterns from Welsh Woollen Mills such as Melin Tregwynt in Pembrokeshire or Trefriw Mill in the Conwy Valley or the more traditional Welsh tapestry and blanket designs. When the two elements come together and I up-cycle a Welsh blanket then that seems perfect.

I have lived in Talybont for the past thirty years and when the weather is fine you will find me pottering in the garden or walking the hills, but luckily the Welsh weather allows plenty of time in the sewing room.
