Join in and explore the pet cemetery and the old church graveyard, whilst recounting stories of monkeys, mermaids, evil eyes, wizard Earls, and the Silken Thomas’ table. You will see these ancient carvings in new light as you make impressions with a variation of oriental and Awagami handmade papers using different rubbing techniques.
