Tirlun Gwaith/Working Landscape

Tirlun Gwaith/Working Landscape forms part of a Peak/Copa project, recording conversations from rural mid-Wales. The Peak/Copa team pitched up the Horsebox Studio at the Royal Welsh Spring Festival in Builth Wells, where we presented a mini museum of tools from agricultural life over the 19th and 20th centuries. The objects were selected from the personal collection of historian, author and dry stonewaller, Stuart Fry. We invited farmers and smallholders to talk with us to find out more about their experiences and memories of working on the land. Poems were written by Jonathan Edwards in response.
