Harp Taster Sessions in Cardiff

Have you always wanted to try the harp?

Come along to a “Harp Taster” session on the National Instrument of Wales at Camac Harps Telynau Vining Wales-Cymru with Harpist Shelley Fairplay.

During the workshop you will be introduced  to a variety of different harps including Celtic, Concert Pedal and Lap harps. You will be allocated a Celtic harp to use throughout the session and be guided through your very first stages of learning the harp; how to sit, basic harp technique and of course how to create beautiful sounds! By the end of the session you will have learnt how to find all the notes on your harp, played an accompaniment along with Shelley and also be able to play a tune on your own! No guarantees, but we should also warn you that you may well totally fall for this incredible instrument and awaken your inner harpist!

If you have any hopes and dreams of one day renting or even owning your very own harp, Elen will be available during the sessions to answer any questions you might have, including prices and information on Camac harps for sale and details regarding our harp rental scheme which starts from just £50 a month.
The workshop runs from 6.45pm to 8.30pm and includes a short tea break. The sessions are open to all ages and require no previous musical knowledge. Please note under 18″s must be accompanied  by an adult.

Camac Educational Workshops

This Autumn we were delighted to be on tour with renowned harpist Elinor Bennett for a series of workshops supporting the Wales International Harp Festival. In five locations all over the UK we teamed up with a local harp teacher to bring you a day full of harp playing for harpists of all abilities while also spreading the word about the Festival happening in Caernarfon in April 2018. As well as working with Elinor and the local teacher there was also the opportunity to try a selection of Camac harps at our exhibitions which ran at each event.

2000 miles later, after sun, rain and snow, we have reached the end of the UK Camac Educational Workshop tour. A huge thank you to our guest tutors Rohan Platts, Elfair Grug, Llywelyn Jones, Shelley Fairplay and Heather Downie; to all the harpists who came and took part; to Catrin, Nia and the team at CGWM; and to Camac Harps for all their support. An extra special thank you to Elinor Bennett for her inspiration, enthusiasm and friendship throughout the project. We look forward to seeing you all at the festival in Caernarfon in April 2018.

Edinburgh Festival 2017

We exhibit at the Edinburgh International Harp Festival every year – appropriately enough, always in the French room at Merchiston Castle school! This year, we were also honoured to win a tender to supply six lever harps to the Clarsach Society. These harps are going to be used for the Clarsach Society rental scheme

Cardiff Camac Harp Weekend 2017 

Our third Cardiff Camac weekend was a great success! This year, we welcomed none other than Deborah Henson-Conant herself – the inspiration behind our DHC Blue Light electroharps. We also enjoyed concerts and workshops by Eleanor Turner, Tara Minton, Gabriella Dall’Olio, Ben Creighton-Griffiths and Shelley Fairplay. We were joined by Jakez François, Enric De Anciola and Helen Leitner from Camac France, with a special exhibition and free regulations of Camac harps.
