Small World Centre

Home to Cardigan’s Community Arts Centre and Small World Theatre. The building is a multi-purpose space rising to 11m in the middle, with large amounts of natural light, providing Small World Theatre with a wonderful studio space for the design and construction of their large theatrical props for street and other performance events. It is also a space for professional and amateur live performance and is available for hire to user groups and the general public. Early in the design process it was decided that the architecture of the building would reflect the enthusiasm, creativity and hand on nature of Small World Theatre. The most important aspects of the design are that the spaces within should be sustainable and adaptable and that the design should maximize the 5 Rs – Reduce, Recycle, Repair, Re-use and Review. In practice this decision resulted in:

  • The use of timber instead of steel as a main structural frame
  • The re-use of Cardigan brick, available from demolition on the site
  • The incorporation of rain water collection and re-use in the building
  • The use of recycled newspaper in most of the insulation in the building
  • The decision that at least part of the building should demonstrate a method of construction obviating the need for cement.

Michelle Cain

Michelle Cain was born in the Wirral, graduated from Preston polytechnic in 1985 with first class honours in fine art, moved to Wales in 1993 where she first learnt to weave willow and began making sculptures with groups for festivals.

Michelle's work can now be seen at festivals and beauty spots across Britain and Ireland. Her giant sculptures have become regular visitors to the many annual music baskets2events that take place during the summer, the most popular being Glastonbury where the twenty foot tall figures majestically look out over the entire festival from the Green Fields above the main site. Different colours and sizes of willow are used to create the pieces. Her work is recognised as outstanding and original, created at her hidden retreat in rural West Wales surrounded by the landscape that inspires her.

As well as building her giant willow sculptures Michelle also runs creative willow workshops teaching the arts of basket making and sculpture building.
