Morocco travels

We’re delighted that the CSAD Level 5 Field project students could explore our Artists’ Books Collection before their journey to Marrakesh in January. As their Lecturer, Chris Glynn said “students inspired, seeds sown”. Job done! We’re even more delighted that their resulting work is now on display on the ground floor of Llandaff Library. On show until 24th April.



Special thanks to Chris Glynn & students for showing the sights of Morocco this lunchtime & their marvellous artistic creations
