WHO ARE WE?
Ennyn was founded by Mid Wales based artists Nicky Arscott and Elin Crowley.
Between them, they have 20 years experience in devising and delivering workshops for
children and adults in school settings and on community projects.
On this website you will find examples of our work and workshop ideas, but if you have an idea of your own and a
specific budget, please contact to discuss them and we will do our best to offer you a workshop that works for you.
Nicky is a visual artist and poet. She has worked on a range of projects, from creating a huge toilet for WaterAid to take to the EU Parliament, to installing an interactive maypole at Hay Festival as part of her artist's residency there. She has an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Texas, Austin.
She has collaborated with other poets in many different languages to create poetry comics which have been published all over the world.
She lives in Llanbrynmair, Mid Wales with her husband and two children.
Elin is a Printmaker who has had various jobs over her career, including working on education and online websites at the BBC, being part of a TV production team working on lifestyle programmes for S4C, and as part of a creative team at Arad Goch Theatre Company. She has now returned her focus to creating art work and providing workshops in schools and as part of community projects.
Her experience working on 'Lead creative schools' projects funded by the Arts council of Wales has given Elin a new perspective on how creative disciplines can compliment each other, and how creative activities can absolutely contribute to children’s ability to learn core subjects in an accessible and fun way.
She lives near Machynlleth, Mid Wales with her husband and three children.
A keen lifelong gardener, Wendy is also an amateur botanist and ardent advocate of growing for wildlife.
Now retired from teaching, she is a keen vegetable grower and supplies the kitchen year-round.
Having refined her early craft living near Aberystwyth 25 years ago, her return to a wetter Llanbrynmair 12 years ago has been an interesting and satisfying challenge.
With many years experience of working with children with special educational needs, we are extremely lucky to have Wendy as a director. She is also our Safeguarding Lead.
