Y Stiwdio


CARE has been awarded Welsh Government, EU and Lottery funding to develop Garej y Sgwar - an old industrial plot in Hermon - to create a peaceful, publicly accessible space for creative projects.

We will be creating a new building from recycled and natural materials wherever possible, incorporating low-cost energy saving and generation technology into the design, and making an outdoor space to grow food and park vehicles.

Find out more about the main contractors we used: Ty Pren and Hempcrete Cymru

The aim is that local people will also get involved, to use their ideas and skills, and learn new skills around alternative building practices and materials.

Y Stiwdio will be a creative space where wellies are welcome. A place to make, learn and grow. 

The programme has been designed in consultation with our community. There will be a chance to take part in arts and wellbeing activities, learn about sustainable energy, lifestyles and building processes and opportunities to grow food and flowers in our garden.

Our garden space will be designed by local volunteers as part of the 'Feeding our Community' project.
